Courses

Undergrad credit

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.

This is a 1-3 credit course, depending on the projected scope of the student project. Creative Work Project is an inquiry, investigation, or creation produced by a student that makes an original contribution to the field of sexuality and gender studies and reaches beyond the traditional curriculum. This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop and practice advanced discipline-specific projects in collaboration with faculty members. In the first week of the course, a specific list of responsibilities must be developed prior to approval. Credit is variable, and depends on the quantity and depth of work.

The Internship in Sexuality and Gender Studies is an unpaid, supervised work-and-learning experience of approximately 112 'in-agency' hours and fulfills a core requirement for the Sexuality and Gender Studies Certificate Program. The internship is designed around the unique needs of both the student intern and the internship site. The principal objective of this course is to reinforce career/scholarship goals in fields where knowledge of sexuality and gender studies experiences is pertinent. Course topics will vary with internship placement so the biweekly online seminar helps to frame student experiences within queer and/or feminist theory and practice.

In this interdisciplinary course, students will be introduced to key theories and theoretical frameworks for Sexuality and Gender Theory including queer theory and feminist theory. These theories are themselves already quite interdisciplinary, so students will spend time learning how these theories can work across different disciplines and can be used for both practical and academic purposes. Students will learn how to apply theoretical concepts to: the history of sexuality and gender, terminology that helps describe experiences and oppression including heterosexism, homophobia, and transphobia, queer activism, diverse experiences of sexuality and gender, and representations in literature, art, and popular media. We will also take an intersectional lens for our discussion and will discuss how sexual identities intersect with and shape other categories of identity, including gender, race, ethnicity, class, ability status, culture, and nationality.

Special Topics in the discipline. Students may enroll in 595 Special Topics multiple times, as long as the topics differ.

This course explores the concepts of race, gender, ability, culture, and intersecting identities shape our thoughts as they pertain to the study of early intervention justice and equity for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and their families. We will make use of social, cognitive, and developmental theories to explore what it means to be providers in a multicultural society. We will evaluate the construct of race, how babies, young children and adults come to make sense of race, and what utility it has for early intervention providers. We will examine how culture shapes our values, worldviews, and the ways we communicate with one another. We will define and examine implicit and explicit bias, how stereotypes affect behavior, and how privilege and discrimination shape the lived experiences of members of society as those experiences directly affect the families in our field. We will also examine the intersection of multiple social identities with an orientation towards providing equitable services with limited barriers. This course has a heavy emphasis on adults to think about the parents and caregivers with whom early intervention providers work, making way for a family-centered approach. Students of this course will take a reflective journey to reveal and begin to process their internal biases.
