290A: Tps:Biology of Sex and Gender

This new team-taught course will explore the diversity and complexity of sex and gender in the natural world (plants, humans, and other animals). We will read, write, and think about literature from the biological and social sciences that considers such topics as sex determination, sexual dimorphism, hormones and brains, sexual development and function throughout the life cycle, and the social performance of gender.

The course can count toward a Biology major or minor, or toward a major or minor in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Prerequisite: one class in Biology (or permission of instructor), and an open mind.
