Gain in-depth understanding of gendered aspects of society and culture, particularly in relation to other inequalities and social divisions, with UEA’s MA in Gender Studies. From literary theory to online activism, you will explore the dynamics of gender that structure the private and public worlds in which women and men, girls and boys operate.

You will be introduced to all the fundamental debates of gender studies and feminist research methods, equipping you with the tools to actively participate in the shaping of the field. Our teaching is conducted by experts from across the many disciplines that fall under the gender studies remit, including literature, history, philosophy, languages, film and media studies. And you will gain a valuable social science perspective on the subject through input from experts in cultural studies, politics, law and business.
