Course Description

The MA degree can be taken full-time over one year, or part-time over two years. In addition to the 4 compulsory modules (Approaches to Women's Studies I and II, Gender Violence & Justice, Women, Citizenship & Conflict) and the 60 credit dissertation, students taking the MA Women Violence and Conflict will select a programme of research training modules to make up the remaining 40 credits. This programme should be agreed with the supervisor and submitted to Chair of Board of Studies. You will be allocated a supervisor for your dissertation which must be submitted towards the end of your final year. This programme aims: - to provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasizing gendered aspects in relation to violence and conflict in international contexts - to expose students to an interdisciplinary range of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to and debates violence against women and in contexts of violent conflict - to familiarize 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 methodologies to research questions related to issues of violence against women - to foster the development of a critical, self-reflexive and independent approach to research and scholarship, as well as the acquisition of transferable skills. Candidates for the MA will normally be required to have a good first degree (an upper second class degree or its equivalent), although applications from those with other qualifications may be considered on their merits. Applications are also welcomed from mature students and those returning to education. The Centre for Women's Studies also offers a Post Graduate Diploma programme for students who wish to follow the three term taught MA course but not write the dissertation.
