Gender & Sexuality Studies


Gender and Sexuality Studies

Gender and Sexuality Studies at UCL is based at the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry (CMII) but our research and teaching draws on the unique breadth of cross-faculty disciplines for which UCL is renowned. Our programmes explore historical and contemporary changes in gender relations, sexuality and identity within social, cultural and political life.


The Gender, Society and Representation MA is a multidisciplinary programme offering a wide-ranging introduction to gender studies at postgraduate level.

The MA offers students a genuine opportunity to develop their own interests through classes and courses in a mix of disciplines: from development policies, laws and anthropology, to literary scholarship, history and geography.
