Learn to bring a radical, contemporary and global approach to the study of sexuality with our unique, interdisciplinary MA in queer studies.

Jointly taught by the Schools of English and Global Studies – both ranked in the top 100 in the world (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017) – it provides a firm foundation in queer theory and allows you to tailor your studies to your interests.

Since 1991, this course has brought together dynamic, engaged students and faculty to develop cutting-edge work on sexuality. The MA is associated with the Centre for the Study of Sexual Dissidence, a research hub for sexuality and queer studies.
