Human Sexuality Studies (HSX)
The Human Sexuality Studies Certificate blends course work with co-curricular learning opportunities, focusing on guiding students in the application of their course knowledge in productive ways. Human sexuality influences human experience at all levels, including intrapersonally, interpersonally, and culturally. Its reflection in social norms, attitudes and beliefs, public and private policies and practices, religious values, and the media present daily opportunities to critically reflect on one’s own identities, behaviors, and opinions. This certificate program allows students the opportunity to think critically about these issues and analyze how messages and social norms about sexuality influence their lives daily. The Human Sexuality Studies Certificate will require both course credit and co-curricular leadership experiences.
