The University of Oxford, with its unrivalled facilities for post-graduate research, offers a one-year interdisciplinary Master's degree in Women’s Studies, equipping students with the critical and research tools needed for women's studies in the humanities.
Over the year, students receive a systematic introduction to feminist theory, and become familiar with the practical skills necessary to engage in original research into topics in the humanities relating to women and to gender, before choosing an option course and a dissertation topic. Five faculties (English, History, Classics, Philosophy and Modern Languages) are involved in the delivery of this challenging Master’s degree, with students receiving close individual supervision, alongside lectures and classes led by specialists from a wide variety of disciplines.
Students come from all over the world, and have diverse academic
interests, as do the faculty members involved in teaching the
Master’s degree. At the core of the degree, however, is a commitment
to highlighting women's contribution to culture and history in
combination with the critical analysis and theorisation of the
meanings assigned to the category 'woman' in philosophical,
literary, sociological, cultural, and historical thought.
