The Sexual Diversity Studies Program (Specialist, Major, Minor) allows students to focus on questions of sexual identity, difference, and dissidence across disciplinary lines and cultural frameworks. By examining sexual diversity across time and place, students will learn about the ways different cultures have separated the sexual from the nonsexual, the normal from the abnormal, and what the regulation of sexuality can tell us about how power operates along the lines of gender and race, for example. Students will gain an understanding of how and why certain sexual practices have come under scrutiny, and the significance of the various labels and identities that we have attached to them.
