Course summary

This Postgraduate Diploma is ideal for students looking to broaden their theoretical perspective on the area of women, violence and conflict by applying feminist theoretical approaches and a gendered lens. Attentive to intersecting categories, you'll form an awareness of how violence and conflict affect gendered lives differently in local and global contexts.

The course's specialist focus on gendered experiences of violence and conflict provides the advanced knowledge suitable for careers in organisations engaging with issues around human rights, politics and welfare support.

Founded in 1984, The Centre for Women’s Studies (CWS) at York is home to a thriving international community where you’ll study alongside prominent academics in an array of related fields, from terrorism and perpetrator studies to gendered citizenship, activism, and masculinity. You’ll benefit from interdisciplinary teaching and research which is supported by the departments of English and Related Literature and Sociology.

Careers and skills

Our programmes emphasise a feminist sensitivity to difference and power relations, advocating transferable skills applicable in the realms of public engagement and career development.
