About

The field of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies is devoted to the investigation of sexuality and its importance to the organization of social relations more generally. Primary among its concerns is also the study of the lives, the politics, and the creative work of sexual minorities. LGBT Studies is founded on the premise that the social organization of sexuality is best studied from interdisciplinary perspectives and from positions that have been excluded from established social and cultural norms. At present, the program includes courses that study sexuality and sexual minorities using a variety of methodological tools and disciplinary approaches: anthropological, psychological, sociological, biological, political, historical, literary, and artistic. LGBT Studies offers anĀ undergraduate minor and a graduate minor. As LGBT Studies maintains a robust, indeed constitutive, relationship with the Program in Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, only those LGBT courses that devote a significant amount of their time to sexuality and to questioning the historical institution of exclusive heterosexuality qualify for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies minor.
