Course Description

Human Sexuality is a broad field in which many cultural, psychological and physiological variables interact in relation to sexual development, attitudes and behaviors. Methods of scientific psychology are utilized to improve understanding of a broad range of behaviors ranging from healthy to dysfunctional within mainstream modern American culture as well as other cultures. Discussion of differing cultural and moral perspectives is utilized to assist students in making a critical assessment of the nature of the sexual self as well as intimate human relationships within their own community and the world.
