About the MSc programme

This distinctive interdisciplinary programme focuses on integrating the theoretical analysis of gender with questions of globalisation and development.

The programme aims to provide a thorough understanding of economic and social processes that shape the contemporary global world and their gendered outcomes. It considers diverse analytical tools for the analysis of development and globalisation from a uniquely gendered perspective. 

Emphasis is placed on the analysis and theorisation of socio‑economic and spatial aspects of change, particularly changes in working patterns, living arrangements, experiences and subjectivities. A series of case studies and readings of ethnographies will link global and local issues and the lives of people across the globe. 

The programme will be of great intellectual value if you are seeking to understand gender issues in a global and transnational context, or seeking to contribute to policy-making or to do further research in this field. It provides the necessary analytical understanding to inform policymaking and independent research and prepares you for a career in policy-making institutions and NGOs as well as in academia.

Graduate destinations

The interdisciplinary nature of gender studies means that graduates are equipped with a broad range of knowledge and skills that can be applied in a variety of areas. They are able to bring highly desirable gender analysis skills to a wide variety of settings, including: government departments, international institutions (including the EU and World Bank), the media and publishing, charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private consultancy firms, education and research. Many of our graduates continue to study for PhDs and go on to work in academia.
