Gender & Sexuality Studies Minor

Gender & Sexuality Studies Minor

Gender & Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary Minor that explores issues of gender and sexuality from various perspectives. It currently includes courses in English, Human Services, Social Science, and African American Studies, and will continue to grow to include even more disciplines. Students can take courses that focus on humanity, sexuality and sexual orientation, studies in gender identity/roles, representations of genders in literature and film, among other course themes. All courses are open-ended; as such, the course syllabi and themes may vary from year to year. Many Gender & Sexuality Studies courses at City Tech are Pathways certified and can satisfy Writing Intensive and Interdisciplinary Baccalaureate Degree requirements for graduation.
