The MA degree can be taken full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. The taught component of this programme consists of two compulsory core modules, Difference, Diversity & Change and Work, Politics & Culture; one compulsory research module, Interdisciplinary Methods in Women's Studies; the choice of three options from a range which is updated annually (including a further research module if so wished, Qualitative Methods) and the 60 credit dissertation. You will be allocated a supervisor for your dissertation which must be submitted towards the end of your final year.
'One of the most valuable aspects of being an MA student is having the opportunity to develop your own particular areas of interest in a creative and empowering environment. I felt like part of a wonderful international family where my ideas were always encouraged and supported.'
