New Academic Programs
We offer three programs to all undergraduate students across USU’s campuses.
Intersectional Gender Studies (IGS) Minor
The IGS Minor offers a unique program for undergraduate students seeking breadth and depth training in gender studies. The interdisciplinary program trains students to think critically about gender inequality at the intersection of race, ethnicity, social class, gender identity and expression, and sexual identity.
Sexuality Studies Minor
The Sexuality Studies Minor offers undergraduate students a unique opportunity to study sexuality and the body – including the history and politics of sexual norms and practices, and the ways in which sexuality shapes identity and representation. This interdisciplinary minor will complement any major or minor.
Inclusive Leadership Certificate
The goal of the Inclusive Leadership Certificate is to prepare USU students to lead in an increasingly diverse and global world. This certificate is appropriate for students planning careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Students will develop interdisciplinary grounding in inclusive leadership principles, theories and research, and gain valuable communication, collaboration and community engagement skills and experience.
