Currently, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Studies Program is writing a proposal for the first Ph.D. program in LGBTQ Studies. There is much enthusiasm across campus and in the upper echelons of the administration, and we anticipate that the proposal will be submitted to the Office of the President perhaps as early as Fall 2017. If successful, we would probably be accepting our first cohort of LGBT Studies PhD students in Fall 2018.
