Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
The sexuality studies program is an undergraduate program affiliated with York’s world renowned School of Gender, Sexuality & Women's Studies.
Sexuality studies is an interdisciplinary field that explores artistic, cultural, economic, geographic, historical, literary, political, psychological, and social aspects of sexuality. Our program examines sexuality in transnational contexts and investigates intersections of sexuality with ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, health, nationality, race, and religion.
You will learn alternative ways of organizing sexualities and alternatives to sexuality, in the past, present and future, as well as explore and gain a comprehensive understanding of sexual:
Students in sexuality studies can choose courses from various academic areas and take discipline-based courses in fields such as anthropology, geography, history, literature, philosophy, political science, and sociology. Explore further with interdisciplinary courses that use diverse theories and methods derived from the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, fine arts, and professional studies. Courses, seminars, lectures, and special events address lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, intersexual, cissexual, heterosexual, and heteronormative topics.
- You will have the opportunity to learn from more than 20 affiliated professors with international reputations for outstanding work in the field of sexuality studies.
- Sexuality studies at York is unlike other programs because it is interdisciplinary and transnational. You can combine a sexuality studies degree (major or minor) with another more traditional degree (like psychology), or complete a sexuality studies certificate (open to all, regardless of educational background).
- Outside the classroom, you can participate in the activities of the Centre for Women and Trans People at York which offers resources, seminars, and activities. At the Keele Campus students are welcome to join SexGen, a program responsible for addressing issues and concerns of sexual and gender diversity, whether in terms of university policy areas, academic climate or the general university environment.
