Graduate Minor in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health

About the Graduate Minor

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) populations hold a unique set of health concerns often unrecognized in standard health and public health practice. Drexel’s minor in LGBT Health focuses on these concerns recognizing the greater burden of disease these populations sometimes experience as well as the protective characteristics these communities often possess. The minor:

  • Reviews the current state of knowledge about LGBT health,
  • Critiques research methods used to study sexual and gender minorities, and
  • Highlights the intersection between sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, race/ethnicity, age and other factors on health. 

Admission Requirements

  • The graduate minor in LGBT Health is open to all Drexel graduate students. 
  • Students must have permission from their academic advisor to enroll in the LGBT minor.
