Degree Requirements

The major in Gender & Sexuality Studies offers students a comprehensive understanding of the intersections between gender studies and sexuality studies across the humanities and social sciences and their relation to historical and contemporary feminist and LGBT activism.

The minor allows students with an interest in Gender & Sexuality Studies to gain substantial exposure to the field while taking fewer courses than needed for the major. In addition, students often use the minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies to satisfy the “related courses” or “concentration” requirements of their WCAS, MEDILL or School of Communications major.
