Study type Research


The MPhil in Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies provides rigorous advanced training in the multi-disciplinary study of gender. The course is designed for those students who wish to prepare for PhD or further research and also for those who want to enhance their understanding of "gender" by undertaking the MPhil only.

The primary objective of the course is to introduce students from a wide variety of academic, business and policy backgrounds to the traditions, methods and front-line research that shape an advanced gender analysis of human society. Over 20 different departments within the University of Cambridge come together on this course to address a range of topics such as conflict; globalisation; labour market inequality; public policy; culture; biomedical advances; experimental psychology; human rights and justice; literature; and the arts, culture and antiquity. Graduates from this MPhil will emerge as highly desirable candidates for NGO, governmental, policy, business, and academic careers.
