About

Postgraduate research in Sexuality and Gender Studies by Research at University of Birmingham is a truly interdisciplinary collaboration, led by academics from a range of disciplines, each bringing their specific expertise to bear. 

Overview

The Sexuality and Gender Studies By Research programme at University of Birmingham requires you to prepare a thesis of up to 40,000 words.

Postgraduate research is pursued in its broadest social and intellectual context, and you develop your research project within an active and friendly postgraduate community.

Postgraduates are offered opportunities to present work-in-progress at Departmental Research Seminars and at the School Postgraduate Forum. As appropriate, staff and supervisors will also guide postgraduate students in important areas beyond the thesis itself, such as the preparation of external conference papers and research publications.

Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary work, it is possible to arrange joint supervision involving staff from other Departments, thereby giving you access to a broader knowledge base and maximising the quality and originality of your work.

Careers

Some of the language graduates train to become professional linguists such as translators and interpreters. Other graduates enter employment where their language skills may be advantageous but not central to their role - for example, within international organisations - and some go on to teaching or lecturing positions. 

Employers that graduates have gone on to work for include: Language Connect; RWS Group; TransPerfect Global Business Solutions; University of Birmingham; University of Cambridge; and University of Oxford.
