Course Summary

Course description

Our innovative and highly interdisciplinary PGDip Gender, Sexuality and Culture master's course is designed specifically for students interested in investigating gender and sexuality within culture.

Our approach is unique within the UK, bringing together scholars who offer options in a range of academic disciplines, including English and American studies, art history and visual cultures, politics, history, modern languages, religions and theology, history of medicine, sociology, social anthropology, as well as others.

On top of this, the research culture of The University of Manchester is unusually rich for the study of gender and sexuality.

In close consultation with the course directors, you'll opt for a range of MA units drawn from offerings across the humanities and social sciences. You will also be able to take up training in research methods.

This approach allows you greater flexibility and the opportunity to pursue research in new areas.

Teaching and learning

You will learn through a variety of teaching methods, depending on the units you take, including lectures, seminars and independent study.

Coursework and assessment

You will be assessed in a variety of ways depending on the units you take, including written assignments, participation in discussions, and presentations.

Career opportunities

Whether you're presently employed, are looking for inspiring new career opportunities by furthering your knowledge, are passionate about research, or simply wish to explore a subject you adore in much greater detail, our MA will help you to develop a wealth of transferable skills.

Our graduates have gone on to take up a diverse range of careers in both the public and private sectors.

Some have progressed to postgraduate research, and several have taken up jobs as teachers.

Modules

This MA module is organized as a participatory and collegial seminar, and not as a conventional (undergraduate) lecture course in which one person alone (a lecturer) provides a body of knowledge that other people (students) write down. Instead our seminar will be guided by feminist pedagogical practices, which means that each of us will study the readings with great care in advance of our meeting, and then be ready to discuss the readings with others in an active and engaged way.
