Entry requirements

You’re normally expected to have a Masters degree and an upper second-class (2.1) undergraduate honours degree.

Your qualification should be in gender studies or a related subject area but you may still be considered for the degree if you have a qualification in a different subject area. In certain circumstances, you may also be considered for the degree if you have other relevant professional qualifications or relevant research experience of equivalent standing.

Months of entry

January, September

Course content

Explore the social structures and discourses of gender – our expert faculty offer guidance and supervision through a wide range of research projects.

You could work on topics such as:

  • social aspects of gender including work and/or family life
  • the politics of the body
  • the construction of gendered discourses, experiences and identities
  • women’s, feminist and LGBTQ social movements.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected in our prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
