About the Program

Students in the minor choose from a range of courses that cover three areas of human sexuality: (1) Health and Clinical Components; (2) Social and Psychological Components; and (3) Gender, Cultural and Humanistic Components of Human Sexuality. The minor is intended to provide students with an interdisciplinary field of study in human sexuality that will prepare them for careers in a variety of settings, including clinical mental health, social work, public health, education, public policy and sexuality research.
