What Will You Study

The PhD programme in Gender and Women’s studies is housed in the Department of Sociology. This is an international, interdisciplinary community of over 80 research students working on PhDs in Sociology, Gender and Women’s Studies, Science Studies, Media and Cultural Studies and Applied Social Science. You will be assigned PhD supervisors (normally 2) whose current active research interests and expertise matches your chosen topic. Close working relations are enjoyed with other departments at Lancaster, and in many cases there is cross-departmental supervision.
