This MA is a unique, interdisciplinary course in queer studies. It trains you to bring a radical, contemporary and global approach to the study of sexuality.
Jointly taught by the Schools of English and Global Studies, the course provides a firm foundation in queer theory and allows you to tailor your studies to your own interests.
The MA has been running since 1991 and continues to bring together dynamic, engaged students and faculty to develop cutting-edge work on sexuality. The course is associated with the Centre for the Study of Sexual Dissidence, a hub for research on sexuality and queer studies.
