UWM LGBT Studies Certificate Program

UWM LGBT Studies Certificate Program

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Studies investigates the historical and contemporary experiences of people traditionally neglected in scholarship and courses. It explores questions about sexuality as well as identity, community, representation, diversity, assimilation, and discrimination that are both academically and socially significant. Work in this innovative field includes material and methods from many disciplines: English and foreign languages, Allied Health Professions, Anthropology, Art History, Biology, Communications, Economics, Fine Arts, History, Music, Nursing, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Social Welfare, and Women’s Studies.

The LGBT Studies Certificate is designed for students majoring in any field who wish to complement their study with an additional concentration in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender studies. The program is open to any student in good standing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who is seeking a bachelor's degree or who previously received a bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university, and to those who do not plan to pursue a college or university degree but who have a strong interest in this topic.
