Indiana University, Bloomington’s Department of Gender Studies was one of the first in the nation to offer a Ph.D. in Gender Studies, now in its eighth year. We also offer an undergraduate major as well as undergraduate and graduate minors in Gender Studies. Current areas of strength in the department include race/ethnicity, feminist theory, media/representation/cultural studies, sexualities, sexual health, spatial studies of sexuality and gender (including queer rurality, metronormativity, and diaspora), and studies of science, medicine and technology. The Gender Studies program maintains strong ties with campus units such as the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction and with the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity and newly formed School of Global and International Studies.
