Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program

Program Description

Stanford’s Program in Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies offers an interdisciplinary curriculum investigating the interrelations of gender, sexuality and power, their interactions with other hierarchies such as class, race, ethnicity, ability, and age, and their significance in all areas of human life.  Majors may declare Arts & Culture, Global Studies, Health, or LGBT/Queer Studies as a subplan, or may design their own thematic focus. Program faculty are drawn from humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

Undergraduate Program

For undergraduates, the Program offers an undergraduate major, a secondary major, a minor and an interdisciplinary honors program open to students in all majors.

Graduate Program

For graduate students, the Program offers a Ph.D. minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies that provides graduate students pursuing Ph.D.s in any department broad interdisciplinary knowledge in the field and prepares them to teach courses in the subject. The goal of the program is to bring together graduate students and faculty from different departments, programs, and schools who use feminist and queer perspectives in their research.
