Yeah, this should prepare students for lucrative jobs lecturing coffee buyers about the evils of racism. The University of Minnesota – Duluth ($23,522 [In-state and illegal immigrants] $27,188 [Out-of-state], is adding a Minor Concentration in LGBTQ Studies… which will be as useful as any other degree in a field that has the word ‘Studies’ in it.
“This minor will prepare students for life,” Gesa Zinn, head of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department, told Campus Reform. “‘The job’ the LGBTQ minor prepares students for is to understand and embrace all members of an increasingly diverse society.”
To complete the minor, students will have to take classes such as An Introduction to LGBTQ Studies, Queer Theory, Queer Cinema in International Perspective, History of the Homosexual Rights Movement 1895 – Present, and Queer Media.
