Course summary

Violence and conflict are always gendered processes. Shining a critical light on gender helps us to understand violence and conflict better.

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.

The course is designed to challenge preconceptions, and foster your understanding of a range of significant issues and developments within feminist theory, cultivating critical skills that are applicable not only for independent learning but also for interpreting everyday gendered lives.

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. You will learn to analyse your own preconceptions and engage with a wide variety of social/political issues, facilitating your development into responsible global citizens.

Fostering enhanced analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to communicate complex ideas with nuance and awareness of difference and diversity, this PGDip in Women, Violence and Conflict also offers a suitable foundation for graduates wishing to pursue further education in the field.
