About Sexual Diversity Studies

About Sexual Diversity Studies

The Minor concentration in Sexual Diversity Studies is now in its seventh year at McGill University. It sets out to bring together into a coherent program much of the exciting new work and teaching in the study of sexuality across many disciplines. Fifteen departments or programs across five faculties provide courses. The program is vigorously eclectic, drawing on feminist studies, queer studies, LGBT studies, and a rich variety of other theoretical and empirical perspectives.

For further information concerning courses, consult the IGSF Teaching Programs Handbook available from the IGSF or at www.mcgill.ca/igsf. The most up-to-date information concerning courses will be on the website.
