Offered by the Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies Collaborative , College of Arts and Sciences , the Minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies examines familiar issues in gender/sexuality studies (including lesbian, gay, bi and trans studies, masculinities, and feminist theory).

Critical applications of queer theory to personal and social life are emphasized.
