Requirements

12 credits are required for the LGBTQ Studies minor. Our introductory (and mandatory course), WMST 2100 Fundamental Concepts in LGBTQ Studies, covers all the basics of LGBTQ history and LGBTQ theory.

But we also offer many other classes that aim to give students a more specific and in-depth understanding of topics crucial to LGBTQ Studies. Students can choose from any three of these courses to satisfy their academic requirements within the minor:

WMST 3405 Women’s Sexualities
WMST 3354 Politics and Sexuality
WMST 3330 Queer Politics in Modern America
