Five College Certificate in Queer and Sexuality Studies

About the Program

The Queer and Sexuality Studies certificate provides students at Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, Amherst and Smith Colleges as well as the University of Massachusetts Amherst an opportunity to enroll in a course of study that examines critically the relationship between queer sexual and gender identities, experiences, cultures, and communities in a wide range of historical and political contexts. The certificate is now approved for students at all five campuses in the consortium: Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

For advice and directions on how to apply for the certificate, students should contact one of the program advisors from their campus.

Applications must be signed by a program advisor and submitted for review by the Program Steering Committee.
