2SLGBTQ+ Studies: Topics in Gender and Sexuality


Certificate of Accomplishment


Program Code: CE0002

2SLGBTQ+ representation is forefront in all aspects of society today. These representations are prevalent in the media, public personalities, politics, sports and workplace dynamics. Despite this positive shift, there is still much about 2SLGBTQ+ topics that is unknown, resulting in the existence of homophobia/transphobia and hate crimes. 

How do we support our family, friends, students, and coworkers who are struggling with coming out or want to transition? How can we educate our children to become more understanding and supportive of the 2SLGBTQ+ community? Through an interdisciplinary focus, this foundational certificate will begin to answer these questions and more by allowing students to better explore and challenge the histories of sexuality and gender normativity across multiple political, legal, workplace, artistic, literary, and cultural contexts. 

Students will participate in an interactive, engaging, and inclusive and safe community-building space.

Program Structure:

  • Six 15-hour (5 weeks) courses in the certificate
  • Delivered in an online hybrid model with both synchronous and asynchronous delivery
  • The synchronous classes will run from 6:00pm - 9:00pm EST in the second and fourth week of each course
