Course content

his Master’s degree has been taught in the School since 1990. It was born from a need for people with an advanced social science expertise in gender analysis to contribute to development policy formulation, practical development activities and development education and research. The intervening years have certainly shown this to be the case - our graduates have gone on to work with the World Bank, UK DFID, Oxfam and as academics.

You’ll study both the theory and practice of gender in development. This will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in an advisory capacity for organisations concerned with integrating gender awareness into their programmes and policies.

The course also emphasises skills in research techniques and methods that are essential not only for further academic research but also in practical development work and policy formulation, such as gender planning and gender policy approaches, including gender mainstreaming.

The School of International Development at UEA is a globally renowned department for teaching, research and consultancy on international development.

You’ll benefit from small class sizes, a friendly, open learning environment and added extras such as our series of regular seminars on 'Working in Development', with guest speakers from development agencies.
