Sexual Diversity Studies

The Collaborative Program in Sexual Diversity Studies, offered by the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, is a rigorously interdisciplinary program recognizing sexual diversity studies as an interdisciplinary field of inquiry. While it has emerged as an autonomous scholarly area, many of those who work within it engage questions of gender, ethnicity, race, Aboriginal status, (dis)ability, and class, to highlight the importance of exploring their interaction with sexual differences.

The graduate degree programs listed below participate in the collaborative program. From their home departments, students may take up questions from their own disciplinary or programmatic perspective, but explore it through the theoretical and methodological lens of sexuality studies. Upon successful completion of the degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative program, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Program in Sexual Diversity Studies” on their transcript and parchment.
