The MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights is a flagship programme of the Centre for Global Women’s Studies at NUI Galway. It offers a unique opportunity for in-depth study of the gender dimensions of globalisation and global issues, through an interdisciplinary programme that combines the fields of: gender and women’s studies, international development, human rights, and peace and conflict studies. Students acquire the theoretical, conceptual and practical tools needed to apply a gender perspective and undertake gender analyses in relevant domains of practice and employment at local, national and international levels, as well as for advanced research at doctoral level and beyond. In addition to modules on globalisation, development, human rights, gender and feminist theory, health and sexuality, women in agriculture, historical perspectives, and peace and conflict, skills-based modules are offered in research methods, applied gender analysis and empowerment. Students also have the opportunity to undertake an accredited, two-month professional placement with a relevant organisation working on issues related to programme themes.
Applicants must have attained second-class honours or better in a primary degree in a relevant discipline (at National Framework of Qualifications Level 8), or equivalent international qualification (minimum GPA 3.00 out of 4.00). Publication/professional experience as deemed suitable by the College of Arts may be considered where the formal requirements are not completely satisfied.
