About the MSc programme

The programme employs a gender perspective to critically examine such questions as how representations in the media may reinforce or subvert social roles and ideologies; how gendered forms of address and identification have been theorised across different visual and print cultures; and the role of a variety of media forms in critiquing or contributing to wider social processes such as globalisation, conflict and migration. 

In addition to the core units in gender theory, media and communication, and gender and media representation, you can choose from a range of options offered by the Department of Gender Studies and the Department of Media and Communications. You are encouraged to interrogate a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to the gendered analysis of contemporary media and culture. 

This programme is offered by the Department of Gender Studies, which is recognised as a centre of research, teaching, policy advice and advocacy work, with faculty having won a range of awards, and with students from across the globe. The Department serves as a focus for gender research across the LSE, and works to promote a close relationship between policy makers and the academy. The Department provides a vibrant research culture with resident Research Fellows, visiting scholars, public lectures and conferences, and a regular programme of research seminars.

Graduates are able to bring highly desirable gender analysis skills to a wide variety of settings, including: the media and publishing, government departments, international institutions, charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private consultancy firms and education.
