Course content

The Masters in Gender History provides the opportunity to develop and deepen analysis of the workings of gender in the past. Alongside the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Gender History, which brings together one of the largest concentrations of gender historians in the UK, the programme encourages comparisons across time and cultures as well as allowing in-depth research into particular questions.

  • You’ll be taught by research specialists in Gender History and have the chance to tailor the programme to your own interests and practice.
  • Glasgow is home to world-class museums, galleries and libraries, including Glasgow Women’s Library, the only dedicated museum in the UK with a large archive and collection on to women’s lives, histories and achievements.

  • A masterclass for postgraduates with an interest in Gender History is led by a distinguished visiting speaker in conjunction with the Gender and History public lecture hosted by the Centre for Gender History each year.
  • Gender History is increasingly relevant within professional and voluntary sectors.
