Course summary

The MRes in Sexuality and Gender Studies is an example of truly interdisciplinary collaboration, staffed by academics from a range of disciplines, each bringing their specific expertise to bear on the topics under discussion. The programme introduces you to a range of theoretical and methodological issues and debates, which have characterised the development of sexuality and gender studies in the twentieth century. These include: feminist theory, masculinity studies, queer theory, postcolonial theory, psychoanalysis, ethnography, sexology, and criminology.

The MRes programme features three taught modules, followed by a 20,000-word thesis.

The course aims to ensure that, at the end of the programme, you are able to: deploy relevant methodologies and theoretical discourses; elaborate critical positions and engage in debate on a broad range of texts and disciplinary fields; carry out independent research, even as a foundation for doctoral study. The programme provides you with sophisticated theoretical frameworks and methodologies with which to approach issues of sexuality and gender in a range of texts (literary, visual, film, dramatic) and in socio-cultural contexts. It ensures a solid methodological foundation for your own exploration of sexuality and/ or gender in your chosen area.

This Degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.
