Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies
Spring 2014 Five College Queer and Sexuality Studies Certificate
Course List

Five College undergraduates can now earn a Five-College certificate in Queer and Sexuality Studies.  This course of study will enable students to examine critically the relationship between queer sexual and gender identities, experiences, cultures, and communities in a wide range of historical and political contexts.

To earn the certificate, students must successfully complete a total of seven courses, including one introductory course, at least one critical race and transnational studies course, and five other courses. These five courses must include at least two courses in the Arts/Humanities and two courses in the Social/Natural Sciences, and at least one of the five courses must be an upper-level (300 or above) course.
