Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Cultural Studies at UC Davis emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to research that includes intersectional analyses of class, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, nation, transnationalism, post-colonialism, and related areas of inquiry. The UC Davis program cuts across the humanities, social sciences, and agricultural and environmental studies and draws faculty from a wide range of disciplines and interests.

Students may pursue research in the following emphasis areas: 1) gender and masculinity, 2) sexuality, 3) comparative race studies, 4) media and popular cultural representation, 5) science and society, 6) transnational and global studies, 7) religions and communities, and 8) rhetoric and critical theory. Or, with the close guidance and supervision of a faculty committee, students may create unique emphasis areas.
