A new minor in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender studies has been approved.

The new minor will become official next academic year, appearing in the SDSU catalog for the first time for the 2009-2010 academic year. However, students can take courses in the minor now.

About the minor

The minor will be an interdisciplinary program, not affiliated with any one department. 

It will include courses in:

  • English
  • General studies
  • History
  • Journalism and media studies
  • Television, film and new media production
  • Women's studies

About LGBT studies

LGBT Studies is a growing academic specialization across the United States. Such programs have been established for years at other universities, including:

  • San Francisco State University
  • University of California Los Angeles
  • UC Berkeley
  • Duke
  • Princeton
  • Rutgers
  • UC Irvine
  • UC Riverside
  • UC Santa Cruz

Individual courses in LGBT Studies have been offered at SDSU since the late 1970s, but they have never been consolidated into a program for students. 

SDSU is the second university in the California State University system, after SFSU, to have such a minor. 

More information

Professor Esther Rothblum, Women’s Studies Department, is advisor for this minor. She can be contacted at (619) 594-6662 or via e-mail.
