Gender & Sexuality Studies

Mars and venus gender symbols

Gender & Sexuality Studies draw on the unique breadth of cross-faculty disciplines for which UCL is renowned. We aim to address the challenges arising from contemporary changes in gender relations and to provide students with the theoretical and methodological frameworks with which gender and sexualities are explored, researched and implemented. Our approach is inclusive: while staff and students may focus primarily on gender or on sexualities, the relationship between these and other dimensions of identity, including class, racialisation, age and ethnicity, is never overlooked.

The Gender & Sexuality Studies programme offers an MA in Gender, Society and Representation and a PhD degree.
