Gender Studies (MA)

Program Overview
Career Opportunities
Program Structure

The Master of Arts in Gender Studies program is designed for facilitating enhanced awareness of gender issues and for the development of required skills for dealing with gender issues in interested individuals who wish to pursue a professional career in a diversity of disciplines ranging from health services, law, media, politics, to education and social work.

 

Like many other Masters programs at GAU, MA in Gender studies is also programmed to facilitate further educational, professional and personal development for individuals at work. On this basis, the lectures are scheduled to run at convenient times for the ‘working student’ (evenings), over a three- semesters/year format. The normal progress will mean completion of the MA degree in Gender Studies in two years.

 

The program requires completion of 5 core courses and 3 elective courses. All courses will be 3 semester-hours and the students must therefore complete a total of 8 courses. In addition, the student has to complete a research-based thesis and successfully defend the thesis in a viva voce examination run by 3 senior academic members from departments relevant to the topic of the completed thesis. All students who do not have a first degree in Psychology or Sociology will be required to take the bridging courses in Social Psychology and Sociology before commencing the MA in Gender Studies Program.
