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.
