Undergraduate modules

Taught MA and research supervision

Undergraduate students are able to take Gender Studies modules through the university options and electives systems. These modules develop students' knowledge of gender as a category of analysis, beginning with general introductory material and progressing on to more focused and specialised study. If you are interested in taking Gender Studies modules as part of your degree, speak to your 'home' department in the first instance. They should be able to tell you which Gender modules you may be able to take.

At postgraduate level prospective students can apply for taught MAs or DPhil study online. The postgraduate prospectus can be found here, and the online application form can be found here. Please also look at the information on funding your studies.
