Starting in fall 2018, a new course at North Shore Community College (NSCC) will introduce GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) studies.

Introduction to GLBTQ Studies will examine the historical, scientific, and cultural developments that have contributed to the formation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities and communities within contemporary literature, politics, and society. Through written and visual texts, the course identifies major themes and trends among GLBTQ identities and offers opportunities for further individual exploration. Students will also consider the uses and approaches of queer theory as an analytical tool with focus on non-heterosexuality within a heterosexually-dominant society.

Intro to GLBTQ Studies fulfills open, liberal arts, social science, and humanities electives.  No textbook purchases are required.

Early enrollment is strongly suggested as seats are limited.
