The two taught modules on this course aim to provide you with postgraduate-level research methodologies and skills, as well as highlighting contemporary debates on 'gender' as a broadly defined field. With expert guidance, for the third module you will produce a 28,000-word dissertation on a gender-related topic.

Why study this course with us?

The University of Chester’s Institute of Gender Studies is an exciting research hub for students and staff, and regular seminars also involve the wider community, as well as international speakers. In studying for an MRes in Gender Studies, you will be working with leading researchers who have taught and published extensively in the field.

Our course will encourage you to develop an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to your studies, finding connections between, for example, English, Sociology, Media Studies, or Religious Studies.

The extended dissertation will allow contact time to be largely directed by you, as you explore in depth a topic of particular interest to you.
