Prospective MA students
UCL's MA in Gender Society and Representation is an interdisciplinary programme drawing on the unique breadth of cross faculty disciplines for which UCL is renowned.
UCL offers students a genuine opportunity to develop their own interests
in a wide range of disciplines: from development policies to literary
scholarship and queer theories, from laws to art history, from
anthropology and geography to film studies, philosophy and politics.
The MA in Gender Society and Representation operates under the Centre for Intercultural Studies. It draws on the expertise of staff from a wide range of departments and faculties at UCL, all international experts in the field of Gender Studies. The programme is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge of both the theory of gender and its application in various disciplinary contexts, and with the skills, concepts, methods and theories required for the study of gender at graduate level.
