Course summary

Overview

Research students can specialise in any aspect of gender or sexuality studies for which suitable supervision is available. Potential supervisors’ disciplinary perspectives are drawn from anthropology, architecture, development studies, education, geography, law, literary and film studies, queer studies, sociology and urban studies.

Careers

PhD students may go on to academic careers or careers in research. Gender is now an integral aspect of research and planning in a wide range of areas. The need to address different forms of discrimination has created a demand in both the public and the private sectors for highly qualified graduates with a broad theoretical background in gender studies, a familiarity with the issues facing women from different backgrounds, and a commitment to social change.

Employability

The PhD demonstrates the ability to produce original knowledge and ideas, to work independently and creatively on a substantial research project, and to construct convincing and well-founded arguments. Links with the Gender, Society and Representation MA offer teaching assistant opportunities that provide valuable academic experience in skills development, planning and organising learning and teaching, facilitating group-based learning and evaluating student work. PhD candidates can choose Gender Studies or Sexuality Studies as the field of study on statements confirming the degree award; other options may be possible.
