Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies (from 2019-20)

The Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies, administered by the Department of Cultural Studies, is an interdisciplinary Minor involving courses from four programmes in the University: Cultural Studies, History, Sociology and Translation.

The Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies addresses emerging issues in formations of gendered subjects and sexual subjectivities. New forms of gender identities and new patterns of intimacies have emerged in today’s globalised world. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, this minor aims to provide an overview on major theoretical transformations within gender and sexuality studies, and to examine cultural politics within historical writings, media representations and literary texts. Upon completion of the Minor, students are expected to be able to address and analyse critical issues of gender and sexualities and to account for some of the broader impacts of gender and sexual subjectivities in our everyday life.

All undergraduate students who wish to pursue a Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies are required to complete five courses (15 credits) as detailed below:
