The Gender and Sexuality Studies program of The New School is designed to foster intellectual collaboration on the study of gender and sexuality among students and faculty representing a variety of disciplines.

Learn to recognize and respond to questions such as: What is gender? How is sexuality culturally constructed? How do attitudes toward gender affect individual experience, artifact design, artistic production, and modes of social organization? How do we respond to gender-based claims of injustice? What does social justice looks like in a gendered (or post-gendered) world?
