What Will You Study

The MA in Gender and Women's Studies and English combines teaching and scholarship in Gender and Women's Studies and in English Literature.  This is a unique MA for students interested in Gender and Women’s Studies who want to pursue literary studies or who have a particular interest in women's literature or feminist literary theory.

Students take core courses in each of the disciplines and can choose from a range of optional courses in addition to these. This combination is administered from the Centre for Gender and Women's Studies - one of the largest centres in the UK for feminist research, gender studies and women’s studies. 

As a student on this degree you will join students and researchers from across the world that come to Lancaster not only to learn and carry out research but to meet other scholars and activists, to take part in seminars and workshops, and to absorb the ideas, insights and questions of world-leading leading feminist and literary academics.
