The following information is based on:

My procedure has been to search for the word "lesbian" in homepage searches, to look for LGBT groups under "Student Organizations", and to scan for courses in, and cross-listed by, Women's Studies, Cultural Studies, and Multicultural Programs, and in/by Sociology, Anthropology, and English departments.

These lists are not exhaustive; they include only information that I have received, not necessarily confirmed.

  • LGBTQ graduate programs?
    PhD programs in Women's Studies, Feminist Studies, Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and the like will all support PhD dissertations in LGBTQ areas. See the guide to PhD programs posted by the National Women Studies Association.

    Graduate certificates are offered by the following: University of Michigan, University of Washington, Northern Illinois University, Ohio State, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Miami University (Ohio, 2010), San Diego State (in preparation as of 2012)

    San Francisco State University now (2005) offers a M.A. in Human Sexuality Studies. Yale offers a graduate qualification in the field of Lesbian and Gay Studies. University of Toronto offers a graduate concentration in partnership with MA and PhD programs in other disciplines.

    Indiana University has offered a PhD in Gender Studies since 2006.

    APA-Accredited Clinical Psychology PhD and PsyD programs at the California School of Professional Psychology, a division of Alliant International University, has numerous faculty supervising doctoral dissertations in the area of LGBTQ Studies. A "graduate interdisciplinary specialization" is offered by Ohio State.

    There are coordinated programs: U. Chicago; U. Washington (graduate certificate program in Lesbian Studies). Empire State University (NY) offers various LGBTQ concentrations in their MALS program. Most LGBTQ graduate work is done through allied departments offering courses and the opportunities to produce theses and dissertations in the LGBTQ-aspect of the primary discipline (e.g., "Lesbian Novels of the Early 20th Century" âin an English department); see, for instance, the description for Tufts & Brown.

    There are at least two MA programs in the United Kingdom: "Gender, Sexuality, and Culture" (first offered Sept 2003) through Women's Studies at the University of Manchester (http://orgs.man.ac.uk/ws). This program will consist of two courses over a year, plus a thesis. And the University of Leeds offers a MA in Gender, Sexuality, and Queer Theory

    The Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, offers a MA in Gender Studies and a PhD in Comparative Gender Studies (in place 2006). Since CEU is accredited by the State of New York (SUNY), American students can receive US credit.

  • How do I get a PhD in LGBTQ Studies?
    See the CEU program, above

    Aside from the Aliant International University (San Francisco; see above), there is no graduate program in the US devoted exclusively to LGBTQ Studies.

    So, as with every other topic, you need to focus on a specific theme and apply to a relevant program; in other words, you will be getting a PhD in some department with your thesis on a gay issue (e.g., 20th c. history of Gay Studies [History], Lesbians in other cultures [Anthropology], the social stratification of Lesbians in America [Sociology], Greek homosexuality [Classics], gays in the Bible [Religious Studies], how Lesbians spend money [Economics], Lesbians in American politics [Political Science], etc.).

    Before applying to a graduate school in these areas, talk to the graduate advisor to see if there is a faculty member willing & capable of advising you in your subject.

    University Libraries, in conjunction with those of the Saskatchewan Archives Board and the University of Saskatchewan Archives [housed in the same building], probably contain the second strongest collection in Canada [after the National Gay Archives in Toronto]. The Saskatchewan Archives Board, Saskatoon office (SAB) has a number of important gay and lesbian collections: the Richards collection donated by Neil Richards of Saskatoon, occupies over 14 linear meters and was assembled over the past 20 years. According to the SAB Personal Papers Archivist, Nadine Small, the scope and depth of the collection permit the detailed study of Canadian gay and lesbian life and issues since the 1960s. Other collections include: the Doug Wilson papers, the record of a high profile Canadian gay rights activist; the Peter Millard papers detail the various involvements in the struggle for gay rights of this U. of S. emeritus professor of English and former chair of the U. of S. Faculty Assoc.; the Don McNamee papers are those of a former U. of S. professor of art and human right activist; and the papers of the Coalition for Human Equality, of which McNamee was a prominent member.

PRISM (Pride, Raising awareness, Involvement, Support, and Mentoring) was formed in 1997 and has steadily grown to be an influential organization in motivating the student body to open themselves up to diversity, especially diverse sexual and gender-related orientations. The alliance also works to promote awareness, tolerance, equality and understanding, and to dispense GLBTQQA-related information campus-wide. In addition, it strives to offer support services for GLBTQQA students.

    "We offer an unusual richness of courses directly focused on LGBTQ issues--most of which are clustered in the undergraduate Critical Studies and Visual Studies programs, and some of which are taught in the grad Visual and Critical Studies MA program." There is no major or minor in Critical Studies, however.
    for example (Spring 2009): "Critical Studies offered a lower-division "Transgender Cultural Production" and an upper-division "Making Queer Histories" course, while grad VCS offered "Sex, Gender, and Queer Theory." These courses were keyed to a speaker series co-sponsored by CCA and the Queer Cultural Center, which we called "Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts" or QCCA."

    UNC-Chapel Hill

    Programs
    In the late 1990s the University set up a Committee for LGB Courses (chair: Cecil Wooten, Classical Studies) with a budget of about $200,000.00, to encourage gay and lesbian studies in traditional departments. The money came from a bequest made to the university by Dr. Charles Williamson of San Francisco, to be used for this purpose. The committee sponsored individual lectures or small conferences dealing with gay and lesbian topics, and granted money to faculty for developing new courses. By 2000 there were about fifteen courses that could be considered part of a gay and lesbian studies program.

    In 2002, the University undertook a comprehensive study of lgbtq climate issues on campus; it is available as a download-able file: http://www.unc.edu/glbtsa/lgbtqreport.doc. As a result of that study, a LGBT Office was established in Student Affairs (http://lgbt.unc.edu/), and in 2004 an undergraduate minor in Sexuality Studies was established: http://www.unc.edu/sexuality/index.htm.

    The Program in Sexuality Studies (cf. Duke University's Program in the Study of Sexualities) offers many courses from a wide variety of departments.

    For further information, contact the director of Sexuality Studies: sexuality@unc.edu.

    Within the larger UNC-CH community there is also a wide variety of resources: http://lgbt.unc.edu/resources/community.html.
