Duration: Full-time: 1 year, Part-time: 2 years

Min. entry requirements: 2:i undergraduate degree in Arts or Social Sciences or equivalent professional experience. In some cases it may be possible to apply for the PG Diploma with a view to upgrading to the MA subject following a satisfactory performance.

English Language: IELTS 7.0 with no more than 2 elements at 6.5/6.0 (and none below 6.0)

This course encourages you to question the concept of development, particularly western understandings of it, and gives priority to issues and debates identified within specific countries under study rather than relying on predominantly western literature. Located at the intersection of interdisciplinary gender studies and international feminist theory, it argues that gender relations are central to processes of international development and that gender is cross-cut by other significant differences.

You’ll study core modules that address theoretical perspectives on gender and development, and their relationship to paradigms in development thought, as well as policymaking and implementation in gender and development. You’ll also receive training in social sciences research through a core module shared across all of our MA programmes. You can then apply these skills as you undertake independent research under supervision in order to complete your dissertation.

Our optional modules enable you to explore gender and development in relation to issues such as global capitalism and the labour process, human rights, and postcolonial theory. Our students have gone on to work in contexts including development agencies in their own or other countries, national or local government work, charities, private and public sector management and administration, and academic research.
