Women's Studies

This programme provides an exciting opportunity for those who already have a particular research interest, and who wish to learn research skills in order to pursue an independent piece of work. The degree has been designed for students who wish to explore a Women's Studies topic in some depth and who already have substantial undergraduate knowledge and expertise in the field. In addition to regular meetings with their dissertation supervisor, students taking this degree will also be required to take the appropriate research training course in Women's Studies, alongside students on either the MA degree or the MA (Humanities) degree.

Entry requirements

Applicants require a UK 2.1 or international equivalent in a relevant subject. If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you are applying to.

Assessment methods

It is expected that students will have regular dissertation tutorials with their supervisor, during term time, and that they will regularly prepare written work. The degree is examined solely via the submission of a 25,000 - 30,000 word dissertation.
