Course summary

This course offers the opportunity to explore ideas of gender and gain knowledge of contemporary gender issues in a global context, at an advanced level. This Master’s degree is inspired by a curiosity about gender, how gender operates, what difference gender makes and how gender might be imagined in ways that could facilitate resistance and change. Students will be encouraged to critically examine their own assumptions, and, most importantly, to question popular and common-sense notions of gender. The MA Gender Studies places considerable emphasis on advanced research methods, enabling students to hone qualitative and quantitative research skills, and supporting them in becoming confident researchers in their own right. The programme draws on a range of subject specialisms within the School of Social and Political Sciences and connects students with tutors who are research leaders in their respective fields of study. The atmosphere in the School of Social and Political Sciences is collegial and friendly. All students are invited to attend the School’s research seminar series. Tutors are approachable and keen to support students on their personal research and career paths. Career and Personal Development: The programme is designed to develop specialist subject knowledge relevant to careers in a wide range of areas, such as the voluntary and public sectors. Students have the opportunity to develop a set of transferable skills relevant to roles in social research and that are vital for further academic study at doctoral level. Careers Services: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
