Course summary

Course description

Our innovative and highly interdisciplinary MA Gender, Sexuality and Culture master's course is designed specifically for students interested in investigating gender and sexuality within culture.

Our approach is unique within the UK, bringing together scholars who offer options in a range of academic disciplines, including English and American studies, art history and visual cultures, politics, history, modern languages, religions and theology, history of medicine, sociology, social anthropology, as well as others.

On top of this, the research culture of The University of Manchester is unusually rich for the study of gender and sexuality.

In close consultation with the course directors, you'll opt for a range of MA units drawn from offerings across the humanities and social sciences. You will also be able to take up training in research methods.

This approach allows you greater flexibility and the opportunity to pursue research in new areas.
