Course Information

Explore the challenges, developments and possibilities of this evolving subject. You'll address a diverse range of theoretical and methodological approaches to women's and gender studies, challenging your assumptions and academic understanding.

This MA offers the opportunity to study the complex issues and debates within women’s studies and gain a critical understanding of the intersections between feminist thought and wider social and cultural debates. An emphasis on practical research and feminist methodologies will equip you with the advanced research skills to enable you to conduct a substantial piece of independent research.

Founded in 1984, the Centre for Women’s Studies (CWS) at York is the home to a thriving international community where you’ll study alongside prominent academics in an array of related fields, from queer studies to feminist theory, political violence, activism, and masculinity. You’ll benefit from interdisciplinary teaching and research which is supported by the departments of English and Related Literature and Sociology.
