Course summary

This distinctive interdisciplinary programme focuses on integrating the theoretical analysis of gender with questions of globalisation and development. The programme aims to provide a firm understanding of economic and social processes that shape the contemporary global world and their gendered outcomes. It considers diverse analytical tools and theoretical approaches for the analysis of development and globalisation from a uniquely gendered perspective.

Emphasis is placed on the analysis and theorisation of political, socioeconomic, institutional and spatial aspects of change and inequality, particularly changes in labour, work and employment patterns, economic restructuring and critical policy issues among others. A series of case studies and interdisciplinary academic readings will link global and local issues and the lives of people across the globe.

The programme will be of great intellectual value if you are seeking to understand gender issues in a global and transnational context, or seeking to contribute to policy-making, or to do further research in this field. It provides the necessary analytical understanding to inform policymaking and independent research and prepares you for a career in policy-making institutions and NGOs as well as in academia.

Assessment

All taught courses are required to include formative coursework which is unassessed. It is designed to help prepare you for summative assessment which counts towards the course mark and to the degree award. LSE uses a range of formative assessment, such as essays, problem sets, case studies, reports, quizzes, mock exams and many others. Summative assessment may be conducted during the course or by final examination at the end of the course.

Careers

The interdisciplinary nature of gender studies means that graduates are equipped with a broad range of knowledge and skills that can be applied in a variety of areas. They are able to bring highly desirable gender analysis skills to a wide variety of settings, including: government departments, international institutions (including the EU and World Bank), the media and publishing, charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private consultancy firms, education and research. Many of our graduates continue to study for PhDs and go on to work in academia.
