MA Gender, Sexuality and Culture

Course Description

In September 2003 the University of Manchester launched an innovative MA programme designed specifically for students interested in investigating gender and sexuality within culture. It has rapidly grown into a successful and vibrant programme. From 2005 this programme will be run from English and American Studies.

The approach is unique within the UK as it brings together scholars who will offer options in a range of academic disciplines, including English and American Studies, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Art, History, Modern Languages, Religions and Theology, History of Medicine - and others.

The research culture of the University of Manchester is unusually rich for the study of gender and sexuality, with a large majority of departments with offerings in this area ranked 5 or 5*.

The city of Manchester too is an exceptionally diverse and culturally stimulating cosmopolitan area.

The MA in Gender, Sexuality and Culture is a highly interdisciplinary programme that:

• introduces new approaches to gender studies and sexuality studies as a theoretical, social, cultural, political and historical field of investigation

• challenges current understandings of gender and sexuality by interrogating cultural identities, such as queer, heterosexual, homosexual, gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered

• examines cultural production and cultural theory in relation to other power systems, such as race, ethnicity and class

• offers training in research methods


The MA comprises:

• one year-long, team-taught course called ‘Gender, Sexuality, and Culture’

• a wide range of course options based on one of several pathways in the Arts and Social Sciences, designed independently by you in consultation with the course directors

• a dissertation

This approach allows greater flexibility and the opportunity to pursue research in new areas. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to apply.
