The Social and Cultural Analysis program offers a concentration in Queer and Sexuality Studies, critically analyzing sexuality, sexual identity formation, structural and societal inequalities, and the diversity of LGBTQA communities. Incorporating elements of social justice, women and gender studies, history, sociology and psychology prepares our graduates to be vital assets in civil rights organizations, NGOs, and in the political and corporate sectors.
The School of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies offers a BA in social and cultural analysis with a concentration in queer and sexuality studies in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU's West campus.
This program combines transdisciplinary topics and methods to critically analyze the function of ideologies of sexuality; the history and present conditions of sexual identity formation; structural inequalities and queer resistance to those same inequalities; and the diversity of LGBTQA communities. Drawing from the premise that sex, gender and sexual orientation are both private experiences as well as profoundly political and public issues with important legal, social and cultural implications, the intellectual core of this program draws from theories, methods and pedagogies in queer theory and sexuality studies while engaging complementary fields of social justice, cultural studies, women's studies, gender studies, literature, history, sociology, psychology and transnational studies. Areas of emphasis include sexuality in culture, transnational queer studies, queer social movements and resistance, sexual fluidity, trans studies and critical heterosexualities.
