When considering how to incorporate sex/gender and sexuality studies into college curricula, the question is: Where to start? In this paper, I argue that college and university programs should include content on the social construction of sex/gender and sexuality within general education courses. I will predominately focus on my work with Ohio community college students as a case study that has broader implications for general education outcomes. Pairing courses such as Sociology and Archaeology (as well as other social sciences) provides opportunities for the creation of learning communities to address social topics such as sex/gender and sexuality from diverse perspectives. Teaching across the curriculum enables an open dialogue to critically review the many causes of, and potential solutions for, inequality. Further, academic collaboration functions to create greater social awareness and understanding through the analytic process of intersectionality.
