Housed in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program, the minor in GLBT Studies is available to all UH students. Academic advising is coordinated through the Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program.
The minor consists of the following 18-hour requirement:
- 3 hours of Introduction to GLBT Studies;
- 9 hours in approved GLBT studies advanced courses;
- 3 hours from the list of approved Women’s Studies advanced courses; and
- 3 hours in approved capstone course (supervised research, field-based service, internship, or an additional 3 hours in elective GLBT studies course).
At least 12 of the 18 hours must be taken in residence of which 9 must be advanced. A minimum 2.00 grade point average is required for all courses attempted in the minor.
The interdisciplinary nature of this minor requires students not to confine course work to any one department. A minimum of 9 hours of approved coursework (including the Introduction to GLBT Studies course) from the Humanities and a minimum of 6 hours approved coursework from the Social Sciences must be taken. A maximum of 6 hours approved transfer substitutes will be accepted toward the minor, and no more than 6 semester hours in a student’s major may apply to a minor in GLBT Studies.
