Course summary

Course Overview

If you’re interested in questioning the concepts of gender and development, and giving priority to issues and debates identified within specific countries – rather than relying on predominantly western literature – then this is the programme for you. It is an international, interdisciplinary and analytical course. It does not assume that development is about the ‘third world’ modelling itself on the west, nor about women modelling themselves on men.

Teaching

Each of our MA courses has specified core modules which will be studied alongside a range of optional modules. You’ll be required to choose four optional modules from our departmental list.

Assessment

Taught modules are assessed through written assignments. Providing you successfully complete the taught components of the course, you will then focus on completion of your MA dissertation in the summer months of July and August.
