The Gender and Sexuality Studies Program at St. John Fisher University consists of an interdisciplinary set of courses, deep research traditions, and lively community engagement offerings that investigate how our lives are affected by socially-constructed notions of gender and sexuality. The program is designed to provide opportunities for the intellectual, personal, and social inquiry into gender and sexuality in relationship with race, class, religion, nationality, culture, immigration and citizenship status, age, disability, and other aspects of identity. We apply the frameworks of feminist, queer, and trans theory, history, and methods. In Gender and Sexuality Studies, students find a vibrant and supportive community of peers, close interaction with faculty from across the university, and opportunities to take on a wide range of leadership roles.
