Gender, Society and Representation is an interdisciplinary programme drawing on the unique breadth of cross faculty disciplines for which UCL is renowned. The programme aims to address the challenges arising from contemporary changes in gender relations and to provide students with the theoretical and methodological frameworks with which gender issues are explored, researched and implemented.
Research degrees in Gender, Society and Representation are a MPhil or PhD.
The PhD normally requires three years’ full-time study (minimum four years’ part-time).
The MPhil is a research degree of the shorter type, normally requiring two years full-time (four years part-time).
Gender Studies has expanded rapidly over the past few decades, to emerge as a central and dynamic interdisciplinary field of study.
As a multi-faculty institution located in the heart of cosmopolitan London and covering an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, UCL offers an ideal environment for gender studies, enabling students to tailor their degrees according to their specific interests and providing a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary work.
Staff contributing to MA-level and research work in gender studies tend to be drawn form different faculties including Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Sciences, Laws, Life Sciences, the Built Environment, and Medical Humanities.
