University of Cambridge: Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies

Institution University of Cambridge
Department Gender Studies
Study type Research


The PhD in Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies introduces students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds to the traditions, methods and front-line research that shape gender analyses at an advanced level through a series of seminars and lectures as well as close personal supervision.

The PhD programme is designed to enable students to produce original research that makes a significant contribution to the field of gender studies. The outcomes of the programme are achieved both through a focused study of a wide range of selected specialised aspects of gender analysis and through the development of more general research skills and methods that enable the student to produce original, independent work. The course aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to:

frame research questions to construct appropriate research designs;

develop relevant methods for gathering, analysing and interpreting research material;

apply normative theories to substantive research topics;

interpret complex research publications effectively;

independently manage primary research, including data management and the writing up of research as well as understanding codes of research practice and research ethics;

and present research and also to make use of constructive criticism.
