Building on past studies at Friends’ Central, this one-semester advanced level course takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining important topics in human sexuality. Using the lenses of biology, history, sociology, and psychology, students explore the impact of human sexuality on the individual, community, and global society. Grounded in the belief that our sexuality is a force for good, the course explores how healthy sexuality can be used to make the world more just, free, loving, and whole. Practical skills emphasized in this class include: keeping one’s body healthy, establishing and maintaining healthy relationships, and making deliberate, informed choices about engaging in sexual activity. Students are guided through the process of creating their own research studies around a question or topic of their choice. This is a one-semester course open to students in grades 11 and 12.
