What is a Master in Inequality Studies? These master’s degree programs focus on the inequality that exists between men and women around the world. The courses may also focus on intersections of inequality, such as race, sexual orientation, and economic class. Students learn about the history of this inequality and study theories on how to increase equality in the future. Students learn to view society through social, cultural, and economic lenses to better understand the forces driving inequality. Many Master in Inequality Studies programs take two years for a full-time student to complete.

Students who pursue a master’s degree in inequality studies can develop a sense of empathy for people who are not like themselves. This feeling can serve them well in personal and career endeavors. Furthermore, graduates typically leave these programs with incredible research and communication skills that are valuable to many employers.

No two master’s degree programs in inequality studies cost the same. Tuition prices can vary between countries, regions, and individual universities. Students should check with each school to determine potential costs.

Graduates with a Master in Inequality Studies can go on to have thriving social justice careers. Some graduates go on to be managing directors or even founders of nonprofit organizations that work with marginalized people to create a more equitable world. Others can go on to work within governmental welfare organizations, managing teams of people who work directly with people in need. Still other people with this degree work in governments as policy advisers. These advisers analyze proposed policies to understand the potential impact on marginalized communities.
