This certificate program is intended for students who would benefit from a thorough introduction to LGBTQ Studies from various disciplinary perspectives. Students in the certificate program will examine how gender, gender identity, and sexuality interact with ethnicity, race, class, and ability while exploring contemporary, cross-cultural, and historical issues related to LGBTQ lives. Students will encounter such subjects as gender and sexuality as social constructions, queer theory, violence and oppression, representation, history of LGBTQ movements and activism, and intersectional alliances. We also encourage students to fulfill the certificate requirements by signing up for an internship or independent study that allows them to demonstrate their LGBTQ advocacy.
