The Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies offers an undergraduate major and minor, and an interdisciplinary honors program that is open to students in all majors. Each Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies student builds an individual program of study around a self-defined thematic focus, integrating courses from multiple departments. The Program encourages work in the arts and supports creative honors theses. Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies majors may declare LGBT/Queer Studies as a subplan. The LGBT/Queer Studies subplan is appropriate for fields of study focusing on history and theories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities, communities, cultural practices, politics, and legal and medical issues.

Curriculum guidelines and forms for the major, minor, and honors are available on our website.

Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an academic inter-departmental program that is not funded by the University to give large grants. However, we do have a small discretionary fund that may be tapped to co-sponsor events related to feminist, gender, and sexuality studies, and we could assist with publicizing our co-sponsored events with our community.
