Studies in Sexualities is an interdisciplinary program that takes as axiomatic that sexuality always is inflected with and shaped by its intersections with categories of race, class, and gender, as well as geography and history. It depends upon feminist analysis as well as the contributions of lesbian, gay, and transgender studies and queer theory.

Faculty affiliated with Studies in Sexualities offer expertise in a range of humanistic and social scientific disciplines. The Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies offer an introductory undergraduate course in Studies in Sexualities, as well as undergraduate and graduate seminars in Queer Theory. These are supplemented with a variety of course offerings from a number of departments that vary from semester to semester.
