LAWRENCE (KSNT) – Choosing a major can be one tough decision for college students. Math, Science, Music…Human Sexuality?
“I just couldn’t see myself majoring in it, it doesn’t have any immediate benefits,” KU student Kyra Roesle said.
Next fall, the University of Kansas will offer Human Sexuality as a undergraduate major. It explores the subject through History, Philosophy, Communication, even Psychology. You might ask yourself, what would you do with that type of degree?
“Students would be able to find careers either in policy, work in advocacy, work around state legislative issues,” KU Professor Alesha Doan said.
They could also says Doan find work in law enforcement, planned parenthood and even sexual violence prevention organizations.
“There are a lot of possibilities out there, however a lot of the times we don’t know what they are until we start looking,” Doan said.
And the chance of a money making career is what most people go to college for.
“If there were jobs they would probably be a very cool job,” Roesle said.
We’re told it was students currently minoring in Human Sexuality who pushed for the degree, not the faculty.
