Course Summary

This course has been taught in the School since 1990. It was born from a need for people with an advanced social science expertise in gender analysis to contribute to development policy formulation, practical development activities and development education and research. The intervening years have certainly shown this to be the case - our graduates have gone on to work with the World Bank, UK DFID, and Oxfam and as academics. You’ll study both the theory and practice of gender in development. This will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in an advisory capacity for organizations concerned with integrating gender awareness into their programmes and policies. The course also emphasizes the development of research techniques and methods that are essential not only for further academic research but also in practical development work and policy formulation, such as gender planning and gender policy approaches, including mainstreaming. The School of International Development at UEA is a globally renowned department for teaching, research and consultancy on international development. Upon completing your MA you’ll be equipped with a range of transferable skills, which means you can pursue a variety of exciting careers both in and beyond international development. You’ll also be well qualified to enter a PhD programme with a view to continuing to an academic career both in the UK and overseas.
