MA Women's Studies (Social Research)


Course Description

The MA degree is taken full-time over one year. The taught component of this programme consists of one compulsory core module, Difference, Diversity & Change; three social science methodology modules; and a research training module; 'Interdisciplinary Methods for Women's Studies'; an option plus 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 equip candidates with the practical and intellectual tools necessary to undertake higher degree level social research on women and gender
- provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasizing gendered aspects of social and cultural life in relation to other social divisions and inequalities
- 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 research methodologies, the politics and ethics of research, the principles of research design and to enable them to evaluate and apply a range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to women's studies research questions.
- to foster the development of a critical, self-reflexive and independent approach to research and scholarship

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.
