Formerly the Graduate Diploma in Women, Gender and Society, our recently renamed Graduate Diploma in Gender Studies continues to deliver rigorous, critical, dynamic learning in feminisms, sexualities, masculinities, gender debates, politics and activisms. Over thirty years it has become the most established gender studies programme in Ireland with a strong international reputation for feminist research, scholarship and engagement in public policy and activism.
Our global and intersectional feminist perspectives offer a complex understanding of how oppression and discrimination operate across society, politics and the economy. We celebrate the intersection between knowledge and activism and expose students to a breadth and depth of scholarship in relation to multiple oppressions, discriminations, politics and policies including gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, race, class and age. This programme leads to a well- recognised Graduate Diploma in Gender Studies qualification from one of the top 1% universities in the world.
