Explore the intersection of gender and politics on one of the only master’s in the UK focused on these two subjects combined. With gender, at last, being given centre stage as a political issue now is a particularly interesting time to be looking at politics and gender in combination. Delving into this fascinating area, this MA will give you a deep insight into issues related to gender and the contemporary world. You’ll explore how gender intersects with politics, international relations, political theory and public policy. Other topics covered include the politics of gender inequality, and the part gender can play in the peace and reconciliation of countries; and gender in political representation, and the steps needed to make electoral organisations more gender-equal. You’ll be joining a well-established team of academics specialising in gender and politics. We have a growing Gender and Sexuality Research Group at the University. -
