The Kinsey Institute’s Continuing Education Program provides information about issues and developments in sexuality and gender research. This program is a continuation of the Kinsey Institute’s mission to promote a greater understanding of human sexuality.
Gender and sexuality are complicated concepts that continue to present important socio-political questions. Because academic and professional training often omits issues related to human sexuality and gender, our goal is to provide the most up-to-date, relevant, and accurate information about these evolving concepts as part of a continuing education program. Our program seeks to fill gaps in knowledge about human sexuality by including topics related to sexual behavior, relationships, gender, identity, and more.
