Course content

The media continue to be central to gendered power relations and identification processes.

This degree combines theoretical and methodological approaches from the social sciences, cultural studies and the humanities to explore the relationship between media, gender and sexuality. You’ll also explore how gender and sexuality frame and are framed by such issues.

The degree allows you to:

  • study texts drawn from a range of historical and national contexts
  • interrogate historical and contemporary approaches to feminism, postfeminism, queer theory, ‘crip’ theory and masculinity studies
  • develop an advanced understanding of gender and sexuality.

This MA is for you if you’re already in the media field or wishing to enter it, or if you’re in an occupation where gender awareness would be an advantage.
