Course summary

We provide an interdisciplinary environment for research and supervision in a wide range of Women's Studies issues to both full- and part-time students.

Each year there are approximately 35 students studying for research degrees. Throughout their registration period, students are given specialised research supervision in their main area of study. This is supported by an academic thesis panel, designed to offer additional help and guidance.

Research: The main focus of the MPhil and PhD degrees is in research and the writing of a thesis.

Transferable Skills Programme: The University and CWS offer sessions to help professionalise the degree. Many sessions are optional and can be chosen as appropriate, while some CWS sessions are compulsory and designed to help facilitate the supportive research culture among the MPhil/PhD group. The women’s studies programme is responsive to students needs and includes sessions on writing skills, producing an academic CV, conference participation, and teaching and writing for journals.

Research seminars: CWS offers a regular programme of research seminars where academics from other institutions offer papers on their research. These seminars and similar ones offered by sister departments are invaluable for extending students’ knowledge, and frequent attendance is highly recommended.

Office accommodation for research students is in the form of shared offices, with desks, shelving, filing cabinets and access to telephone, computers, printing, photocopying and mailing facilities. These offices are in the Centre for Women's Studies on the third floor of Grimston House (adjacent to the University Information Centre). There is also a common-room available for student use, with chairs, a kettle, microwave, fridge and toaster.
