New Queer Studies Minor Offered Fall 2017
In fall 2017, the Women’s & Gender Studies Department will launch a new queer studies minor. This minor provides all Cal Poly students with opportunities to explore the central role of sexuality in human societies.
Courses and Learn by Doing opportunities in the queer studies minor examine how constructions, experiences and expressions of sexuality change over time and are lived in relation to interlocking systems of race, ethnicity, religion, class, nation, age, dis/ability and gender.
Through this exploration, the queer studies minor prepares students to contribute to scholarship, creative production and innovation in the interdisciplinary field of queer studies. Queer studies students also gain hands-on experience serving as leaders in the creation, enactment and evaluation of efforts to create a more inclusive, just and equitable Cal Poly and world.
