Gender and Sexuality Studies - see www.aacc.edu
Purpose: To provide concentrated study of gender and sexuality within a larger liberal arts focus. This option is suitable for students who want to pursue a profession where the demonstration of specialized training in issues related to gender and sexuality is an asset, and/or for students who intend to transfer to a 4-year institution, but who have not decided on a specific major or career path and so prefer a interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary field of study. Because Gender and Sexuality Studies courses teach widely-applicable skills like critical thinking, problem solving, understanding other viewpoints, effective communication, and ethical decision making, this option is strong preparation for many career fields and for students who plan to pursue graduate or professional school degrees. The focus on issues of equity and inclusion make this option particularly useful for those who wish to work on social justice issues.
