Dr. David Barclay, Program Coordinator
The mission of the Sexuality and Gender Studies Program is to educate students regarding cultural, historical, and societal issues in the LGBTQ+ community, with particular attention to issues impacting the intersectional identity of deaf and hard of hearing LGBTQ+ people, and to prepare graduates to be inclusive, socially responsible, global community members and leaders.
Any student in good standing in the University may enroll in the Sexuality and Gender Studies Certificate Program by declaring their intention to the SGS Coordinator. In consultation with an advisor, the candidate for the certificate will design a program that complements their major field of study. No undergraduate course earned with a grade below “C-” and no graduate course earned with a grade below a “B-” will count toward the certificate. In addition, undergraduate students must earn a minimum grade point average of 2.0 and graduate students must earn a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in their respective certificate requirements.
