New Minor in Queer Studies

Posted on February 9, 2013

American Indian Genders and Sexuality Course

The American Indian Genders and Sexuality course, AIS/WGSS 313,  will be taught by Dr. Clarissa Rojas of WGSS in the Spring of 2014 as part of the new Minor in AIS and in the new Minor in Queer Studies.

Minor in Queer Studies

Queer Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that focuses on non-normative sexuality as a primary category of analysis. Queer Studies starts from the assumption that sexuality is central to human social organization; is always experienced in continually shifting contexts; and lived in relation to race, religion, class, nation, and gender. Its methods and premises grow out of scholarship on gender and thus is housed in the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Department.

A minimum of 18 units chosen from the following list of courses, chosen in consultation with the Queer Studies Advisor.


Take both of the following courses:

  • WGSS 205 Introduction to Queer Studies (3)Prerequisites: GE Foundation requirements.
  • WGSS 416 Queering Gender (3)Prerequisite: Upper-division standing.
