Program in Sexuality Studies

In Fall 2004, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill began offering a minor in Sexuality Studies. This minor is designed for students interested in exploring the study of sexual/gender identities—such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and heterosexual—as well as the full range of human sexual behaviors and identities in diverse cultures and historical periods.

The program is multidisciplinary, drawing on disciplines as wide-ranging as anthropology, biology, cultural studies, economics, genetics, health sciences, history, legal studies, literature, political science, psychology, the visual arts, and sociology to study the varying ways human sexual identities and experiences can be constructed and interpreted.
