Course summary

The media continue to be central to gendered power relations and identification processes. This degree combines theoretical and methodological approaches from the social sciences, cultural studies and the humanities.

You’ll learn from some of the most influential academics in feminist and queer studies. Sussex has a long-established reputation for research excellence in gender studies. You'll have seminars, workshops and lectures on cutting-edge research in the field from a variety of disciplines.

You’ll explore the relationship between media, gender and sexuality. You’ll also explore how gender and sexuality frame, and are framed, by such issues.

The degree allows you to:

  • study texts drawn from a range of historical and national contexts
  • interrogate historical and contemporary approaches to feminism, postfeminism, queer theory, ‘crip’ theory and masculinity studies
  • develop an advanced understanding of gender and sexuality.

This MA is for you if you’re already in the media field or wish to enter it. Or you may be in an occupation where gender awareness would be an advantage.

CAREERS

Alongside the intellectual expertise you will gain, this MA is ideal for those seeking a research-based career.
