Sexuality and Gender Studies
World Languages and Culture
This 3 credit course will provide an introduction into Sexuality and Gender Studies.
This course will use texts, articles, speakers, literature, and film to bring students to
a deeper understanding of LGBTQ+ cultures and communities. This course will
educate students on the central concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity
within historical, political, and societal frameworks. Throughout this course,
students will work towards an understanding of the intersectional dynamics of
privilege and oppression as they relate to LGBTQ+ individuals and culture by
exploring the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals and their partners/families.
Special attention will be given to each Unit on LGBTQ+ issues within the Deaf and
Hard of Hearing Communities.
This 3-credit course focuses on how sexuality, gender, and culture impact the
process of developing and maintaining human intimate relationships of friendship
and love. Students will understand how various dynamics impact relationships such
as attraction, communication, interdependency, power, stress, and conflict. Students
will be able to apply knowledge to better understand and assess clients in the
human services field and also be able to apply knowledge and skills to their own
lives in developing their identity in their own relationships.
This 1-credit course will focus on foundational knowledge needed to develop a final
project in the Sexuality and Gender Certificate Program. They will be exposed to
current issues in both the hearing and deaf LGBTQ+ communities through
networking and securing campus speakers, attending the speaker events, and then
having round table discussions with fellow classmates and/or the student body.
They will also stay current on contemporary events in the LGBTQ+ communities and
critically analyze the implications of these contemporary events.
This 1-credit course will prepare students for conducting their final certificate
program project. Students learn about specific research concerns when working
with LGBTQ+ populations. At the end of the course, students will have produced a
written literature review on a sexuality and gender topic.
