MA in Gender and Development


Course Description

IDS research on gender goes beyond the narrow confines of many development projects, taking on issues such as political economy and conflict that have strong implications for development policy. Our groundbreaking work challenges normative ideas about gender with more nuanced, fluid perspectives on femininity, masculinity, women and men, and the way they interact.

This degree brings together experts from a range of academic disciplines and policy experiences with extensive knowledge in research, consultancy and operational work across a range of social science disciplines.

This MA will give you in-depth knowledge and capacity for gender analysis of specific themes, such as reproductive health, rights, identity, environment and social protection, and the tools required to participate effectively in gender and development-related research, policy making, and implementation.

The degree provides a thorough grounding in policy and planning skills.
