What can I do with my degree in Sexuality?

About the program

Interdisciplinary studies in Sexuality’s areas of focus include the study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, intersex, queer, asexual, heterosexual, pansexual, monogamous, non-monogamous, and polyamourous lives, at the intersections of feminism, gender, race, class, politics, culture and more. Courses highlight Indigenous, Black, migrant, diasporic, transnational, decolonizing, postcolonial, disability, and other critical frameworks. As a student in this program, you’ll cross traditional disciplinary boundaries by engaging with sexuality in areas like art history, film, biology, religion, and sociology and you'll have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with many different communities that shape the arts, public health, advocacy, and activism. For the latest information on programs, visit the Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality page.
