If you’re interested in questioning the concepts of gender and development, as well as giving priority to issues and debates identified within specific countries, rather than relying on predominantly western literature, then this is the programme for you.
This is an international, interdisciplinary and analytical course which does not assume that development is about the ‘third world’ modelling itself on the west, nor about women modelling themselves on men.
- Gender, Imperialism and International Development
- Gender Analysis and Development Practice

Each of our MA courses has specified core modules which will be studied alongside a range of optional modules. All our MA courses follow a consistent structure meaning that you will follow a programme of taught modules making up 120 CATS (academic credits), followed by a 15,000 word dissertation worth 60 CATS. Our modules are generally 20 CATS, so you will cover 6 modules - although your exact pathway will depend on the programme you choose and your selection of optional modules. So, alongside your courses core modules (and your dissertation), you will be required to select a number of optional choices. Each course has different requirements for this. Some allow you free choice across the department, and some will require you to select a number of modules from relevant lists.
For MA Gender and International Development you’ll be required to take three optional modules, and two of these options will have to be selected from particular lists. You will have a personal tutor who will be able to advise you on your academic progress as well as discuss aspects such as which modules are best for you.
Taught modules are assessed through written assignments. Providing you successfully complete the taught components of the course, you will then focus on completion of your MA dissertation in the summer months of July and August.
If you study part-time then you will study your taught modules over two years: with teaching taking place during the academic terms. The order in which you study your modules will be agreed following discussion with your course convenor. You will also begin planning your dissertation in year one.
