In this interdisciplinary program, students look at the culturally constructed idea of sex difference in different contexts and the way gender and sexuality are renegotiated over time. Students explore the history of feminist thought and action; men’s studies; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender studies; and
queer theory. Learn more about the Gender Studies program.
Minors are available to undergraduate students across The New School. Those majoring in Liberal Arts (BA or BS, Liberal Arts) can also explore Gender Studies as a guided area of study.
Only specific courses satisfy requirements of the minor, including electives. All of the courses that count toward the minor can be found in the Lang Course Finder. Courses should be chosen carefully, in consultation with the Gender Studies program director. Credit for internships requires approval of the Gender Studies director. Students must receive grades of B or better in all courses taken to
fulfill minor requirements.
Students must receive a grade of C or better in every course used to fulfill area-of-study requirements. If you take a course in fall 2017 that is not included in this list and believe it should count toward your minor, please contact the Gender Studies program director.
Foundational courses offer overviews of gender studies from a variety of perspectives, including
cultural studies, history, and sociology. Some selections may be
upper-level classes. Fall 2017 courses that fulfill this requirement are:
NSOS 3800 Foundations of Gender StudiesLSOC 2055 Gender, Social Inequality, and Cultural WorkLHIS 2210 Gender,
Race, and Citizenship

Capstone experience may also count toward the elective requirement if the
