Queer Studies  Graduate Minor

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts|School of Language, Culture, and Society



The graduate minor in Queer Studies prepares students to examine how gender and sexuality are constructed and policed and, further, imagines liberatory futures for people of all genders and sexualities. Centering itself on the activism and scholarship of women of color, transnational feminisms, Two-Spirit Indigenous people, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people of color, this graduate option examines homophobia and transphobia's relationship with racism, colonialism, sexism, ableism, classism and other forms of power.
