Women’s Studies is the new home of the LGBT Studies Program

After twelve years as part of the Office of Undergraduate Studies, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Program is now part of the Department of Women’s Studies, in the College of Arts and Humanities. LGBT Studies and Women’s Studies at Maryland have a long history of collaboration, and the teaching and research interests of the two units are closely allied.
