The University of Puget Sound has a long tradition of exploring issues pertaining to gender and sexuality. The current Gender & Queer Studies Program enriches and expands the college's curriculum by illuminating the ways in which gender and multiple other converging axes of identity frame every aspect of life. Courses explore the constructions, distinctions, relations, and connections between gender and identity, race, ethnicity, and sexuality. They draw upon a rich array of intellectual traditions, including feminist, queer, race, and post-colonial theories.
