About the course

Having recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, this is one of the longest running degrees on gender and development.

At IDS, our groundbreaking work challenges ideas about gender. We work with nuanced, fluid perspectives on gender and sex, and the ways they interact.

You’ll gain a solid understanding of debates in feminist thinking, and link them to gendered policy and programming. You’ll develop in-depth knowledge and capacity for gendered analysis of specific issues such as:

  • women’s empowerment
  • political economy and the environment
  • masculinities and patriarchy. 

You’ll benefit from our international research faculty’s expertise and our strong working relationships with partner organisations around the world.
