Gender and Sexualities


The theme of gender and sexualities, supported by a dedicated Centre for Gender Studies which is home to the international Journal of Gender Studies, brings together a critically engaged and intellectually diverse body of work.The research in this field is concerned with theorising gender and patriarchy, sexuality, sexual identities and masculinity, yet equally includes a robust focus on policy and practice derived from significant primary research.

Recent research funding supporting this work has included grants for studies on migrant handymen, care-giving and religious imagination among Filipino migrant workers, and on migration, gender and transnational networks within the EU.

About the course

Recognised by the EU as a Masters of Excellence, the MA in Women’s and Gender Studies (GEMMA) is the first programme of its kind. It carries high prestige within the European Union and is sponsored by the European Commission, which provides a small number of annual, competitive scholarships.

The degree involves a consortium partnership with six other European Universities: Granada (Spain), Oviedo (Spain), Utrecht (Netherlands), Bologna (Italy), Lödz (Poland), Central European University (Budapest, Hungary), and Rutgers (State University of New Jersey). You’ll spend one year studying at Hull and all or half of your second year at a selected partner University.

On completion of the course, you’ll be awarded with a Masters qualification from both universities, meaning you receive two Masters degrees.
