Prerequisite: Any PY100- or PY200-level course or any SC100-level course, or SC210 or equivalent. A sociological perspective is used to examine human sexuality, focusing on how sexuality reflects the societies in which we live. Although it is often assumed that sexual attitudes and behaviors are biologically based, they are strongly shaped by society. This course examines the history of sexuality in Western society, the acquisition of sexuality, and alternative forms of sexuality. IG
