  The program reflects current critical, theoretical, and methodological developments across several disciplines that focus on Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual issues. Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Studies are by nature interdisciplinary, and this program is meant to encourage new cross-disciplinary research in the field for interested students in the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. Taken as a whole, the curriculum will address such issues as: sexual identity and orientation; Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual representation; Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual perspectives on the arts; retheorizations of gender; sexuality and cultural diversity; intersections of sexualities and ethnic identities.

Students must declare the minor(s) before their final degree check before graduation, by completing a petition with the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Student Affairs Office, the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences Student Affairs Office, or the College of Engineering Student Affairs Office depending on their major. Prior approval by the department or committee offering the minor is required. The minor is noted on the transcript at the time the degree is conferred.
