The MA degree can be taken full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. In addition to the four compulsory modules (80 credits) including Difference, Diversity & Change and Work, Politics & Culture plus the 60 credit dissertation, students taking the MA in Women's Studies will select a programme of research training modules and option modules to make up the remaining 40 credits. This programme should be agreed with the supervisor and submitted to Chair of Board of Studies. You will be allocated a supervisor for your dissertation which must be submitted towards the end of your final year.

This programme aims:
- to provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasizing gendered aspects of cultural life, representation and textual enquiry
- to expose students to an interdisciplinary range of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to and debates within women's studies
- to familiarize students with the epistemological and philosophical underpinnings of research methodologies, the politics and ethics of research, the principles of research design and to enable them to evaluate and apply a range of methodologies to women's studies research questions
- to foster the development of a critical, self-reflexive and independent approach to research and scholarship, as well as the acquisition of transferable skills

The Centre for Women's Studies also offers a Post Graduate Diploma programme for students who wish to follow the three term taught MA course but not write the dissertation.
The Centre for Women's Studies also offers a generic Post Graduate Certificate programme for students who wish to complete 60 credits (i.e. three modules) of the taught MA course.
For further information about applying please email Admissions Tutor Dr Ann Kaloski-Naylor ().
