Mark S. Bonham Centre for
Sexual Diversity Studies


SDS offers three undergraduate programs, the Specialist (requiring 10.0 full course equivalents), the Major (requiring 6.0), and the Minor (requiring 4.0).

Each builds around a core of interdisciplinary courses offered by SDS itself.  Students are also able to choose from among  more than 80 courses offered by other academic units at U of T. These options are clustered into a group of SDS Elective Courses.  Students are responsible for checking co- and prerequisites for Elective courses

Although Sexual Diversity Studies offers no first-year courses (though some students may come to SDS having taken UC104Y: Engaging Toronto: Sex in the City), and has no prequisites to take our second-year introductory courses, students may find it useful to take a broad range of courses in their first year from the Humanities and Social Sciences, such as first-year courses in Anthropology (ANT100Y), Art (FAH101H, FAH102H), Classics (CLA160H), Drama (DRM100Y), English ENG110Y, ENG140Y, ENG150Y), Geography (GGR124H), History (HIS106Y, HIS109Y), Philosophy (PHL100Y), Sociology (SOC101Y, SOC102H, SOC103H), or Women and Gender Studies (WGS160Y).

More information about the requirements for the SDS Specialist, Major, and Minor programs can be found in the Arts and Science Calendar.
