Course summary

Explore the intersection of gender and politics on one of the only master’s in the UK focused on these two subjects combined.

With gender at last being given centre stage as a political issue, now is a particularly interesting time to be looking at politics and gender in combination.

Delving into this fascinating area, this MA will give you a deep insight into issues related to gender and the contemporary world.

You’ll explore how gender intersects with politics, international relations, political theory and public policy.

Other topics covered include the politics of gender inequality, and the part gender can play in the peace and reconciliation of countries; and gender in political representation, and the steps needed to make electoral organisations more gender equal.

You’ll be joining a well-established team of academics specialising in gender and politics. We have a growing Gender and Sexuality Research Network at the University.

This is also currently one of the only MA courses in the UK focusing specifically on politics and gender, giving you a stand-out qualification.

As well as a compelling set of master’s level skills, you will gain a deep understanding of how gender is approached in politics across national and international spheres, putting you in a strong position for a policy making career.

Graduate prospects

Studying this course is excellent preparation for working in gender policy roles. You could take your expertise into international organisations, multinational corporations, public bodies or think tanks.

You could also take your studies further to doctoral level.
