How have ideas about sex and gender been theorised? How does sex/gender intersect with other aspects of power? What issues do critical feminist perspectives address? What is “identity politics” and is gender an issue of identity or practice? How can gender studies identify what characterises “masculinities” and men’s experiences? As a student in the Master’s Programme in the Humanities, specialising in Gender Studies, you will examine these questions and many others.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Studying gender studies at Master’s level encourages students to critically engage with theories of sex and gender and address the core questions within feminist research. The programme is offered in two forms, a 60 credit (one year) form and a 120 credit form spread over two years. For the 120 credit degree students study full-time for the two years, with different courses constituting 75 credits complemented with a 45 credit thesis. For the 60 credit degree, students read courses to 30 credits complemented with a 30 credit thesis
Within the framework offered by the courses in the programme, students will be guided through research methods as well as academic writing and oral presentation. The courses are grounded in the humanities and social science traditions, but because gender studies is inherently inter-disciplinary, perspectives from other disciplines are also included. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary nature of gender studies means there is a possibility of studying together with students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds
The courses you will take as part of the programme are closely linked to the research conducted at the Centre for Gender Research. Indeed, there is potential opportunity for students to work with these research groups and benefit from the strong research environments and networks offered by the Centre.
Through the course Interdisciplinary Methods and the Writing Process, which runs throughout the programme, students from both year 1 and 2 work together. In this setting students read each other’s work and present their theses at different stages. The course also offers opportunity to meet and discuss methods and methodologies with researchers from the Centre. As such, it operates as both a course on methods and a group supervision.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Gender Studies as the main field of study. It is also possible to graduate after one academic year with a Master of Arts (60 credits).
