Gender and Sexuality Studies

Desire to resolve gender inequalities

Develop an inclusive and multidisciplinary understanding of gender. Gender & Sexuality Studies gives you the best opportunity to learn about topics such as gender issues and human sexuality. As a multidisciplinary transfer program, the knowledge you learn and your passion will translate to a variety of bachelor’s programs.

Once you identify your desired 4-year university or college, complete your Associate in Arts with courses that meet CLC’s requirements. Then, get ready to choose a career path in gender studies or related fields such as sociology, law or education that aligns with your intersectional perspective on gender and sexuality.
