At the Kinsey Institute, we're always learning. Our educational opportunities, fellowships, grants, and outreach programs help ensure that you can do the same.
This minor is co-directed by the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction and the Interdepartmental Graduate Committee on Human Sexuality. The Human Sexuality Program offers a doctoral minor of 12 credits from related interdisciplinary subject areas.
DetailsThe program covers a basic yet broad overview of human sexuality. Students examine the behavioral, biological, cultural, and social components of sexuality and also study of the role of sexuality in the arts and public policy. The program is particularly useful for persons entering fields involving the social and behavioral sciences, education, health science and medicine, counseling and therapy, nursing, social work, humanities, criminal justice, and public policy.
