COURSE FORMERLY VARIATIONS IN HUMAN SEXUALITY I
Health & Human Sexuality
This section of Variations in Human Sexuality is organized and
designed to provide information on significant topics in
sexuality and give students an opportunity to examine and
reflect upon their personal attitudes, beliefs and behaviors
regarding their own sexuality and that of others.
Sexuality is not merely sexual behaviors, but an ongoing
process of personal development and expression that helps
integrate individuals' emotional and intellectual structures.
An understanding of sexuality as process has the potential to
enhance and enrich our interactions with our selves and others.
The course goal is to empower students with knowledge about
multiple aspects of human sexuality: basic anatomical and
physiological mechanics; the role and significance of cultural
conditioning; current research; sexuality's diverse expression;
its relationship to health and well-being. Acquisition of this
knowledge will, hopefully, facilitate the development and
execution of crucial critical thinking and decision-making
skills in this intimate arena of human interests.
