Overview of Major in Human Sexuality

Majors in Human Sexuality focus on the social, political, and medical constructions of human sexuality. They draw from interdisciplinary methods, theories, and research to better understand how the social construction and lived experiences of sexuality relate to race, culture, class, politics, medicine, and social movements.

With a major in Human Sexuality, you'll be able to: 

  • Explore the diverse range of human sexual practices and taboos  
  • Compare scientific, historical, and creative understandings of sexual desire
  • Learn to analyze and address problems of sexual violence, reproductive justice, and LGBTQ inclusivity.
