Certificate Program

in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and

Transgender Studies

 

LGBT Studies investigates the historical and contemporary experiences of people traditionally neglected in scholarship and courses.  It explores questions about sexuality as well as identity, community, representation, diversity, assimilation, and discrimination that are both academically and socially significant.  Work in this innovative field includes material and methods from many disciplines: English and foreign languages, Allied Health Professions, Anthropology, Art History, Biology, Communications, Economics, Fine Arts, History, Music, Nursing, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Social Welfare.

The LGBT Studies Certificate Program provides a curricular structure for undergraduates interested in the interdisciplinary study of same-sex relations, and human sexuality more generally, in past and present cultures.

Program requirements

Students must complete at least 18 credits in courses from the LGBT Studies list with a minimum GPA of 2.5.

1.  GayLesb 200 (Introduction to LGBT Studies), 3 credits
2.  9 additional credits in courses that focus primarily on LGBT issues in at least two of the following three areas:
    a.  Literary and cultural studies (English and foreign languages, Art History, Communication, Fine Arts)
    b.  Social sciences (Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, Sociology)
    c.  Behavioral and natural sciences (Biology, Psychology, Allied Health Professions, Nursing, Social Welfare
3.  6 credits in courses that include a significant amount of attention to LGBT issues or in courses that focus primarily on LGBT issues
4.  9 of the 18 credits in courses numbered 300 or above
5.  No more than 6 credits in independent study
6.  No more than 9 credits in any one department
7.  At least 9 credits taken at UWM
8.  No credits taken on a credit/no credit basis

It is recommended that, in their senior year, students complete one independent study course or an upper-level course such as Eng 629 (Seminar in Literature and Human Sexuality) to synthesize their previous work in LGBT studies.
