What will I learn?

This Master by Research course is characterised by its flexibility and interdisciplinarity.

Course overview

The two taught modules on this course aim to provide you with postgraduate-level research methodologies and skills, as well as highlighting contemporary debates on gender as a broadly defined field. With expert guidance, for the third module you will produce a 28,000-word dissertation on a gender-related topic.

Teaching methods

You will meet weekly with a highly experienced and published lecturer to discuss a specific topic or piece of reading. These sessions will typically last for two hours and are scheduled to take place in the evening.


Assessment modes are designed to dovetail with your specific learning styles and strengths – from seminar presentations to book reviews, conventional essays to essays designed by you – and, of course, to the dissertation.

Careers and Employability

Student Futures aims to deliver a service which is inclusive, impartial, welcoming, informed and tailored to your personal goals and aspirations, to enable you to develop as an individual and contribute to the business and community in which you will live and work.
