Masters of Arts degrees are advanced degrees in the humanities, liberal arts, and social sciences that take one to two years to complete. Students holding a BA may choose to further their education by working toward an MA, which can be a terminating degree or a stepping-stone on the path to a doctorate.

What is an MA in Gender Studies? An MA in Gender Studies focuses on the theories and practices of gender equality in a variety of situations. Students can choose to specialize in gender and work, gender and politics, or gender and literature. Typical courses include the theory and practice of feminism, social change, feminist genealogies, public policy, and women writers. Some programs also explore these issues in a transnational and multicultural context. Associated areas of study included in many programs are sexuality and race.

A graduate degree in gender studies imparts many essential skills beyond just recognizing the social injustices nationally and internationally based on gender inequality. Students also learn important critical thinking, research and communication skills that can be applied to many different careers in a variety of industries.

The cost of an advanced degree differs based upon the institution, geographical location, and many other factors. Therefore, you need to directly contact the school or schools to which you plan to apply to find out their tuition fees in order to budget for your studies.

Many graduates with an MA in Gender Studies continue their postgraduate work to obtain careers within academia. Other graduates utilize their education in gender inequality to work in government or nonprofit organizations to facilitate policy changes or to work as an advocate for women, such as for victims of domestic violence or rape.

There are several universities around the world that offer advanced programs in gender studies. Each one will have a unique area of interest, and interested students should choose schools that match their concentration and career goals.
