“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Gender and Sexuality Studies-Related Programs at New York University

Undergraduate Gender and Sexuality Studies Program

The undergraduate Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies, which is administered through the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, offers a broad interdisciplinary investigation of gender and sexuality as keys to understanding human experience, fully integrating the study of gender and sexuality in its core curriculum, and insistently extending the view beyond U.S. borders.

There is not currently a graduate program in Gender and Sexuality Studies.


History of Women and Gender

Department of History M.A. program includes a field in the History of Women and Gender. The field encourages students to explore the social, cultural, and political meanings and uses of gender constructs and to challenge traditional narratives about men and women across history. Our field draws its strength from our faculty’s commitment to investigating the history of women and gender, and from a long tradition of feminist scholarship.


John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Humanities and Social Thought

The John W. Draper Program offers a broad interdisciplinary curriculum founded on the belief that many issues in the humanities and social sciences are most fruitfully  explored through cross-disciplinary approaches. Accommodating methods and subject matter from varied modes of inquiry, the Program combines curricular flexibility with scholarly rigor. Founded in 1976 as a member of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs and restructured in 1995, the Draper Program is one of the largest and best-known interdisciplinary graduate programs in the country. The Gender Politics area of inquiry offers important insights by reaching into numerous disciplines and examining many different sorts of texts: literary, filmic, theatrical, critical, and “social.”


Gallatin School of Individualized Study

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study is an innovative and interdisciplinary graduate program at NYU for the focused and disciplined student who wishes to cross the boundaries of education by creating a unique program of study. The Gallatin student works closely with a faculty adviser to design a tailor-made M.A. degree that can draw from several disciplines in the various NYU graduate schools. All courses selected must be integrated around a particular theme, problem, artistic endeavor, or professional activity. The Gallatin student also has the option to include independent studies, internships, and private lessons as part of the curriculum. While Gallatin is a flexible program, certain required courses ensure that our students are well prepared to pursue a self-designed study. A master’s thesis is the final requirement and may be in the form of an extended research paper, an artistic work, or a professional project.
