At Emory, students can choose from a variety of courses that explore issues and topics of sexuality and gender. Specifically, the Studies in Sexualities interdisciplinary program is housed in the Emory College of Arts and Science and each semester offers numerous courses with various affiliated faculty from across the university. Further, Emory has a vibrant Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies that frequently offers an introductory course in Studies in Sexualities, as well as seminars in Queer Theory.
Emory students also have access to extensive queer-related articles, books, and media through the Woodruff Library and can be easily searched using the library’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Guide. Additionally, James Steffen serves as the library’s LGBT Studies librarian. If you want to conduct research on the LGBT history of Emory, you can now search the Office of LGBT Life's Records at the Woodruff Library.

Our materials range from educational documentaries and theoretical works by Judith Butler, to comedies like Will & Grace and tongue-in-cheek dating books.
