Course Summary

There’s never been a more apt time to study gender and its effect on international development. You’ll explore a number of fascinating topics including concepts used in gender analysis of development, social justice, gender and power, and poverty and inequality.

You’ll also tackle gendered approaches to social and human development such as capabilities, social exclusion, human rights, violence, religion and identities. We offer a broad training that integrates theory and development policy experience, which is both sectoral (for example, education, land and property, credit and finance, rural livelihoods, sustainable development, environment and conservation, HIV/AIDS) and cross-cutting (such as, migration, male gender identities and masculinities in development).

You’ll graduate ready to make your impact on the world of international development through taking the first step in your career or moving on to PhD study.

OVERVIEW

This Master’s degree 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, Oxfam and as academics.

You’ll studyboth thetheory and practice of gender in development. This will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in an advisory capacity for organisations concerned with integrating gender awareness into their programmes and policies.

The course also emphasises 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.

Modules

The aim of this unit is to provide you with a solid grounding in gender analysis of development, and to enable you to understand the link between gender and key debates within development studies such as poverty, violence, religion and the role of men in gender and development. The module introduces and explains the range of ideas, debates and tools, which are the foundations of gender analysis, within a discussion of key issues in gender analysis of development: the nature of the household and kinship, gender roles, power and empowerment, and environmental change. The unit stands alone as a foundation for gender analysis of development, it also builds the necessary basis for the more applied units which follow in the spring semester, and for dissertations based on gender topics.
