Students acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to conduct gender analysis and to apply a gender perspective in relevant fields of employment, locally and internationally, as well as for advanced research. The MA also offers the possibility of completing a professional placement with agencies and organisations where knowledge of gender and global issues is required.
The course comprises core and optional modules (see course website for details), and a research dissertation, which is completed over the summer months. Practical workshops throughout the year strengthen research and writing skills and professional development.
