Gender Studies degrees abroad

Gender studies is a relatively new and exciting academic field that explores how perceptions of gender shape human behavior and societal norms. It’s an inter-disciplinary subject which draws upon ideas and concepts from other fields, like sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, biology, and law.

You’ll examine definitions of gender and examine how they’ve been constructed and sustained across different countries, cultures, and timeframes. You’ll also study the work of different gender theorists and scholars and challenge their findings. You’ll try to understand why gender inequality still exists and what it would take for equity to be achieved.

The way people perceive gender is heavily influenced by their historical and cultural context. By studying abroad, you’ll be exposed to new gender norms and ideals and will see first-hand how they operate in society. This global perspective will help you to become a more critical, insightful, and empathetic thinker.

Gender Studies program structure

It’s possible to undertake a bachelor’s gender studies program, but tracking one down can be difficult. If you do find a BA at a university that interests you, you’ll study for a minimum of three years and gain a comprehensive understanding of the subject area.

It’s much more common to study a bachelor’s degree in social sciences or humanities, before enrolling in a master’s or a master of research (MRes) degree in gender studies. An MA will involve more taught classes, whereas and MRes is structured around more independent research.

The highest postgraduate degree you can pursue is a PhD. This is an original research project that can take anywhere between four and seven years to complete.

Teaching and assessment of gender studies programs will vary from university to university, but you can expect to attend lectures, seminars, workshops, and tutorials. You’ll probably need to complete exams, essays, presentations, and group projects.

Gender studies is a flexible degree with plenty of room to choose elective modules that reflect your interests. However, here’s a list of core modules that most programs will cover:

  • Gender theories and approaches
  • Sex, gender, and power
  • Feminism
  • International gender politics
  • Gender and contemporary culture
  • Gender relations
  • Family roles and dynamics
  • Fighting prejudice and discrimination
