Gender and Sexuality
Students in the Gender and Sexuality thread will encounter scholarship and theoretical perspectives on gender and sexualities, including masculinity studies, feminisms, and queer studies. The thread will provide resources from various contexts and disciplines to analyze gender, including gender identity, expression, and performance. Students completing the thread should be able to examine the relationship between cultural expectations of feminine, masculine, or androgynous behaviors and the realities of gendered lives. The Gender and Sexuality thread aims that male, female, and gender nonconforming students will make connections between classroom material and their own experience.
This thread can be 9 or 18 hours.
Students must take courses from at least two course levels: 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000.
Courses in a 9-hour thread must be from a minimum of two disciplines. Courses in an 18-hour thread must be from a minimum of four disciplines, with no more than nine credits from any one discipline.
*A maximum of 9 credit hours of Internship may be used in an 18-hour thread and a maximum of 4 credit hours maybe used in a 9-hour thread.
