Program: Minor in Human Sexuality

Program Description

The interdisciplinary minor in Human Sexuality is offered by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The minor serves students with a special interest in this area because of its relation to their career plans (in counseling, teaching, scholarly research, etc.) as well as those who want to take courses in this area as part of their liberal arts education. The minor also serves professionals who want to augment present knowledge and skills in the area of human sexuality. Many courses in the program satisfy requirements or may be used as electives in several majors as well as in the Human Sexuality minor.
