Course content

The MRes in Sexuality and Gender Studies is an example of truly interdisciplinary collaboration, staffed by academics from a range of disciplines, each bringing their specific expertise to bear on the topics under discussion.

The programme introduces you to a range of theoretical and methodological issues and debates, which have characterised the development of sexuality and gender studies in the twentieth century. These include: feminist theory, masculinity studies, queer theory, postcolonial theory, psychoanalysis, ethnography, sexology, and criminology.

The MRes programme focuses on research and, as such, is broken down into three modules and a thesis, totalling 180 credits:

Theories, Issues and Methodologies (20 credits)
Sexuality, Gender and Representation (20 credits)
Training Needs and Research Skills (20 credits)
20,000 word thesis (120 credits)
