The study of human sexuality involves many disciplines and topics. It involves anatomy and physiology, gender, psychology, human development and interpersonal relationships to name a few. It is the cause of both tremendous social conflict and debate. This course attempts to give students a modern perspective on the field, as well as to show how this topic must be studied in a diverse and ever-changing world. Variations in sexual orientation, the nature of sexual coercion, the physiology and psychology of sexual behavior are all addressed in this course. It also seeks to bring a greater understanding of sexual health issues, attitudes and behaviors.
