Course Introduction

In this course, you will learn about sexology from ancient to contemporary times. The learning activities include listening to lectures, watching films, writing a brief responsive essay, and passing a quiz. The activities are to be done in order. You must check off each activity as complete before you can proceed to the next.

Learning activities include:
- 4-part lecture on the history of sexology
- Watching the film "Kinsey"
- Participating in an online discussion

Keep in mind that there are, of course, multiple "histories," and not just one American-centric history of sexology. In a later module and course, the subject of culture and sexuality will be presented.
