    • The Graduate Certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies (GSS) is a 12-credit curriculum that both draws on courses offered across The New School and offers its own courses, such as the core course, Gender and Its Discontents. The program is open to all current graduate students at The New School as well as interested parties not currently enrolled in a New School graduate program.

      Visit the Gender and Sexualities Studies Institute website to learn more about the graduate certificate program, events, and related faculty and students. Consult the Gender and Its Discontents blog to read work that faculty and students and faculty have done in this core certificate course as well as in other New School venues and outlets.
