USask launches certificate focused on queer theory, gender diversity, sexualities

The University of Saskatchewan has launched a new program that will focus on queer theory, gender diversity, and sexualities. The interdisciplinary certificate program will give students the opportunity to learn queer studies, history, and anthropology, as well as to feel accepted and learn about themselves. “As a queer person, I felt it was very important for me to offer to the students something that would allow them to understand themselves, understand the world around them,” said USask Professor Alessio Ponzio. The certificate will begin in Spring 2022. CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
