Course Summary

This MA is ideal for students looking to broaden their theoretical perspective on the area of women, violence and conflict through applying feminist theoretical approaches and a gendered lens. Attentive to intersecting categories, you'll form an awareness of how violence and conflict affect gendered lives differently in local and global contexts.

The course's specialist focus on gendered experiences of violence and conflict provides the advanced knowledge suitable for further study and careers in organisations engaging with issues around human rights, politics and welfare support.

Founded in 1984, The Centre for Women’s Studies (CWS) at York is home to a thriving international community where you’ll study alongside prominent academics in an array of related fields, from terrorism and perpetrator studies to gendered citizenship, activism, and masculinity. You’ll benefit from interdisciplinary teaching and research which is supported by the departments of English and Related Literature and Sociology.

Careers and Skills

Our programmes emphasise a feminist sensitivity to difference and power relations, advocating transferable skills applicable in the realms of public engagement and career development. You will learn to analyse your own preconceptions and engage with a wide variety of social/political issues, facilitating your development into responsible global citizens.

Fostering enhanced analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to communicate complex ideas with nuance and awareness of difference and diversity, this MA in Women, Violence and Conflict also offers a suitable foundation for graduates wishing to pursue doctoral research.

Modules

This module provides a context and foundation for other more specialised work in Women's Studies as well as a space for thinking about general problems of method and theory in this field. It enables students from many different disciplinary backgrounds to work with their peers to develop a broad range of knowledge suitable for interdisciplinary and intercultural feminist research.
