Women�s and Gender Studies (GEMMA)

The GEMMA programme involves a consortium partnership between 7 european universities: Hull (UK), Granada (Spain), Oviedo (Spain), Utrecht (Netherlands), Bologna (Italy), L�dz (Poland) and Central European University (Budapest, Hungary). Rutgers (State University of New Jersey) has now also joined the Consortium. Successful applicants spend 1 year in their selected �home� institution and all or half of their 2 year at a selected partner university. Successful candidates are awarded a Masters from both universities and thus receive 2 Masters degrees.

Entry requirements

Applicants are normally expected to have an Upper 2nd Class degree or equivalent in the social sciences or a cognate discipline, but applicants with other qualifications and relevant experience are carefully considered. Competence in the English language (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent) is required of international students. Relevant gender-related work experience is an advantage but not essential.

Course modules

Drawing on the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, this interdisciplinary programme provides students with the opportunity to study women�s and gender issues and theories from a range of perspectives and to an advanced level. Students who complete the programme are enabled to: Develop an advanced critical knowledge and understanding of contemporary gender theories; demonstrate an advanced understanding of research methods relevant to their particular field of interest in women�s and gender studies; analyse the social, ethical and political implications of feminist research; analyse the value of feminist work and more generally gendered analyses within a range of contexts; critically apply a gendered perspective to a wide range of issues and tasks; develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of gender; negotiate different international university environments.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by means of essays, examinations and other written and oral presentations, as well as the extended 20-30,000 word dissertation.
