Queer Studies Graduate Minor

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.

Master's students must complete a total of 20 credits, and doctoral students must complete a total of 24 credits. Students whose primary area is WGSS may use required course work for their program towards an MA or PhD minor in Queer Studies.
