University of Kansas to Offer a New Bachelor’s Degree Program in Human Sexuality

The University of Kansas has announced the addition of a new bachelor’s degree program in human sexuality studies. The new program will begin this fall. It will offered through the department of women, gender, and sexuality studies. Students in the program will examine how sexual identity and practices contribute to significant contemporary social issues such as human trafficking, family violence, and health inequality.

“We’re excited to offer a new undergraduate degree in human sexuality, which is an area of academic study not available as a major elsewhere in the state or in the immediate region, yet is an important and growing field of study,” said Alesha Doan, chair of the department of women, gender & sexuality studies.

Dr. Doan, who is also an associate professor of political science at the University of Kansas, is a graduate of the University of New Mexico. She holds a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and a Ph.D. in political science from Texas A&M University.
