What will I learn?

This pioneering course foregrounds the importance of gender and sexuality in examining the contemporary political world.Gender and sexuality shape the world and influence every aspect of our lives. They are central to our identities but also play a prominent role in national and global politics. They inform policy making and affect debates about security, the economy, conflict and welfare while driving protest movements and social change.This course combines the study of national and global politics with an inclusive and intersectional approach to discussions of gender and sexuality. It draws on approaches including political theory, philosophy, history, sociology, psychology, geography, linguistics, literature, media studies and cultural studies.Diverse modules allow you to create a course that reflects your own interests. You’ll take academic modules that provide a strong theoretical basis for understanding the politics of gender and sexuality, as well as practice modules where you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with local organisations, such as feminist and LGBTQI+ groups.You will graduate with the knowledge and transferable skills needed to become an active participant in the field.
