About

The MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights at National University of Ireland, Galway offers students a unique opportunity to combine advanced study of two important fields — globalisation and human rights — through a critical, advocacy-oriented, gender lens.

Overview

The MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights at National University of Ireland, Galway is a flagship programme of the Centre for Global Women’s Studies at NUI Galway. It offers a unique opportunity for in-depth study of the gender dimensions of globalisation and global issues, through an interdisciplinary programme that combines the fields of: gender and women’s studies, international development, human rights, and peace and conflict studies.

Students acquire the theoretical, conceptual and practical tools needed to apply a gender perspective and undertake gender analyses in relevant domains of practice and employment at local, national and international levels, as well as for advanced research at doctoral level and beyond. In addition to modules on globalisation, development, human rights, gender and feminist theory, health and sexuality, women in agriculture, historical perspectives, and peace and conflict, skills-based modules are offered in research methods, applied gender analysis and empowerment.

Students also have the opportunity to undertake an accredited, two-month professional placement with a relevant organisation working on issues related to programme themes.

Career Opportunities

Graduates have found employment with a range of national and international NGOs working in the health sector,

women’s rights, domestic violence and social work. Several students with an interest in education have successfully moved to teaching in secondary schools. The MA is a recognised qualification for fourth level education in social sciences, human rights and humanities.
