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 at least one course from the 2000 level or above.

Courses in a 9-hour thread must be from a minimum of two departments. Courses in an 18-hour thread must be from a minimum of four departments.
