Professor Director of Graduate Studies
The minor invites any Cornell graduate student interested in FGSS to design an interdisciplinary program of study. Faculty spans several fields, including literatures in English, performing & media arts, anthropology, communication, history, and africana studies, allowing studies to develop a graduate minor to meet their specific interests.
A required introductory course, FGSS 6880: Proseminar in Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies, is taught every spring and offers an introduction to theoretical and practical aspects of the interdisciplinary field of FGSS. Students will explore both the disciplinary specifics of FGSS scholarship and the interdisciplinary breadth of gender/sexuality's reach as an analytic lens. While many of our graduate courses train students in highly specialized areas of feminist theory, this course aims to teach students how to find common intellectual ground from interdisciplinary perspectives without sacrificing the complexity of any disciplinary approach.
Students will complete the required course and designate a member of their special committee, drawn from the list of FGSS grad field faculty, to guide research in the minor area of FGSS, recommend classes, and attest to competency in FGSS at the time of the A-Exam and dissertation defense. That committee member will inform the FGSS DGS of their student's progress in fulfilling minor requirements. Fill out the FGSS Graduate Minor application form here:

Upon completion of the minor and graduate degree requirements, the student will be awarded an FGSS Graduate Minor Certificate.
Director of Graduate Studies is Ellis Hanson.
This is a minor field. Application for admission to the Cornell Graduate School is made only to the major fields.
The FGSS Graduate Colloquium gives graduate minors across disciplines the opportunity to present their feminist scholarship to faculty and other graduate students interested in gender and sexuality studies. If you are interested in presenting at the colloquium, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies.
