Study Details

MA: 1 year

Applicants are asked to demonstrate their formal or informal exposure to some aspect of gender studies, along with evidence of initial thinking about a broad area of research. The program aims at developing independent and critical thinkers with a broad basic knowledge of gender studies and the skills to approach gender as a key element of social and symbolic order at the local and the global levels. In keeping with these goals, the program introduces students to major theoretical and methodological approaches to gender studies from a range of disciplines. The present faculty includes scholars trained in history, sociology, socio-cultural anthropology, political science, international relations, philosophy, literature, legal studies, rhetoric, and cultural studies.

This intensive program is for students who have a four year bachelor’s degree and some grounding in gender studies or a related field. The program will introduce you to the major theoretical and methodological approaches to the field from a range of disciplines, including history, sociology, international relations, legal studies and literature, leading to original research on your chosen topic.
