MA Women's Studies (Humanities)


Course Description

The MA degree can be taken full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. The taught component of this programme consists of two compulsory core modules, Difference, Diversity & Change and Work, Politics & Culture; the choice of three options from a range which is updated annually; one research module: Interdisciplinary Methods in Women's Studies and a series of dissertation workshops. In addition you will be allocated a supervisor for your dissertation which must be submitted towards the end of your final year.

This programme aims:
- to provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasizing gendered aspects of cultural life, representation and textual enquiry
- to expose students to an interdisciplinary range of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to and debates within women's studies
- to familiarize students with the epistemological and philosophical underpinnings of feminist methodologies in the humanities
- to foster the development of a critical, self-reflexive and independent approach to research and scholarship, as well as the acquisition of transferable skills
- to provide candidates with a range of skills and competences appropriate to higher degree research in the Humanities

The Centre for Women's Studies also offers a Post Graduate Diploma programme for students who wish to follow the three term taught MA course but not write the dissertation.
