Queer Studies Minor at Pace

 

Queer Studies Minor brought to you by The Department of Women’s & Gender Studies 

Interested in courses that examine LGBTQ topics, history, and culture from a queer perspective?  The new Queer Studies minor is organized around the insight that sexuality is at the center of the human experience, from the formation of the individual to the organization of diverse societies.  Our courses examine the significance of same-sex desire or cross-gender identification throughout history, and across a variety of global cultures.

Want to declare the minor, or have questions about it?  The minor can be declared starting in Spring 2012.   Contact Professor Stephanie Hsu at shsu@pace.edu,  or just drop by the WGS office in Room 1502, 41 Park Row.  But before then, you can register for some of the classes below.  We will be adding more courses to this list each semester, so keep an eye out for new offerings.  Talk to Dr. Reagin or Stephanie Hsu if you want to substitute another course you’ve taken for something on this list.

See Fall 2013 course offerings below!  To check out previous semester's course offerings click here.
