LGBTQ Studies Certificate Program
The LGBTQ Studies Certificate is an interdisciplinary program of study through which students explore historical, sociocultural, and political issues central to sexuality studies through a variety of lenses, including queer theory. Students learn to think critically about sexuality as it intersects with gender, race, class, and other socially significant categories. Administered through the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, the certificate offers research and internship opportunities, and students may choose from a range of course offerings across different disciplines. It is open to all Ohio University undergraduates.
