Gender and Sexuality Studies

Purpose: The Letter of Recognition in Gender and Sexuality Studies is offered for students who desire basic knowledge in the field of Gender and Sexuality Studies for career purposes, personal enrichment, or as a pathway to the certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Multidisciplinary in nature, Gender and Sexuality Studies focuses on the role of gender and sexuality in the construction of individual identities, interpersonal relationships and social institutions. Courses promote an understanding of power and privilege in a social context. Students are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills by analyzing the ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with other social variables like class, race, ethnicity and disability.

Credits earned for the letter of recognition may be applied to the certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies and to the Associate of Arts degree in Transfer Studies. The letter of recognition also enables students to prepare for employment that focuses on the role of gender and sexuality in fields such as health, law, psychology, social work, education, public policy and business, and provides a credential offering evidence of concentrated study in the field of Gender and Sexuality Studies.
