Course summary

Having recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, this is one of the longest running degrees on gender and development.

At IDS, our groundbreaking work challenges ideas about gender. We work with nuanced, fluid perspectives on gender and sex, and the ways they interact.

You’ll gain a solid understanding of debates in feminist thinking, and link them to gendered policy and programming. You’ll develop in-depth knowledge and capacity for gendered analysis of specific issues such as:

  • women’s empowerment
  • political economy and the environment
  • masculinities and patriarchy.

You’ll benefit from our international research faculty’s expertise and our strong working relationships with partner organisations around the world.

CAREERS

You’ll develop the skills required to participate effectively in gender- and development-related research, policy-making and programme implementation.

Our graduates become specialists and advisers in gender and human rights for governments and development organisations worldwide – including ministries of foreign affairs in countries such as Azerbaijan and Indonesia, UNIFEM, USAID and the UK’s Department for International Development.

Some of our graduates also go on to teach gender studies in universities around the world.
