Course summary

The programme employs a gender perspective to critically examine such questions as how representations in the media may reinforce or subvert social roles and ideologies; how gendered forms of address and identification have been theorised across different visual and print cultures; and the role of a variety of media forms in critiquing or contributing to wider social processes such as globalisation, conflict and migration.

In addition to the core units in gender theory, media and communication, and gender and media representation, you can choose from a range of options offered by the Department of Gender Studies and the Department of Media and Communications. You are encouraged to interrogate a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to the gendered analysis of contemporary media and culture.

Graduates are able to bring highly desirable gender analysis skills to a wide variety of settings, including: the media and publishing, government departments, international institutions, charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private consultancy firms and education.

Assessment

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 you will be equipped with a broad range of knowledge and skills that can be applied in a variety of areas. Graduates are able to bring highly desirable gender analysis skills to a wide variety of settings, including: the media and publishing, government departments, international institutions (including the EU), charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private consultancy firms and education.
