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.

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.
