LGBT students studying

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Studies is an interdisciplinary program which fosters research and teaching related to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Students may earn a minor or certificate in LGBT Studies at the undergraduate level and a certificate at the graduate level.

A minor or certificate is recommended for all students interested in examining issues of gender and sexual orientation in order to function as informed citizens and successful professionals in the twenty-first century. Pursuing a minor or certificate in LGBT Studies is particularly appropriate for students preparing for or currently working in a variety of disciplines or careers in business, communications, the arts, education, health, humanities, social sciences, and human services.
