Women's Studies (Social Research)

This programme aims to equip candidates with the practical and intellectual tools necessary to undertake higher degree level social research on women and gender and provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasising gendered aspects of social and cultural life in relation to other social divisions and inequalities; it aims to expose students to an interdisciplinary range of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to and debates within women's studies; the course also aims to familiarise students with the epistemological and philosophical underpinnings of research methodologies, the politics and ethics of research, the principles of research design and to enable them to evaluate and apply a range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to women's studies research questions.

Sponsorship information
