Overview

With gender at last being given centre stage as a political issue, now is a particularly interesting time to be looking at politics and gender in combination.

Delving into this fascinating area, this Gender and Politics  MA from University of Bath  will give you a deep insight into issues related to gender and the contemporary world.

You’ll explore how gender intersects with politics, international relations, political theory and public policy.

Other topics covered include the politics of gender inequality, and the part gender can play in the peace and reconciliation of countries; and gender in political representation, and the steps needed to make electoral organisations more gender equal.

You’ll be joining a well-established team of academics specialising in gender and politics. We have a growing Gender and Sexuality Research Group at the University.

This is also currently one of the only MA courses in the UK focusing specifically on politics and gender, giving you a stand-out qualification.

As well as a compelling set of master’s level skills, you will gain a deep understanding of how gender is approached in politics across national and international spheres, putting you in a strong position for a policy making career.
