MA (Gender, Globalisation and Rights) Online Information Session

The MA in Gender, Globalisation and Rights is a flagship programme of the Centre for Global Women’s Studies at University of Galway. It offers a unique opportunity for in-depth study of the gender dimensions of globalisation and global issues, through an interdisciplinary programme that combines the fields of: gender and women’s studies, international development, feminist theory, human rights, and peace and conflict studies. Students acquire the theoretical, conceptual and practical tools needed to apply a gender perspective and undertake gender analyses in relevant domains of practice and employment at local, national and international levels, as well as for advanced research at doctoral level and beyond. In addition to modules on globalisation, human rights, gender and feminist theory, development security, health and sexuality, skills-based modules are offered in research methods, advocacy approaches and gender analysis. Students also have the opportunity to undertake an accredited, 6 week professional placement with a relevant organisation working on issues related to programme themes and/or a fieldtrip.


This programme will benefit anyone seeking to expand the professional opportunities open to them by deepening their understanding of international development, human rights and other global issues, from a gender perspective. It is suitable for graduates and mature students, wishing to pursue a career in advocacy, equality, diversity and inclusion, policy research, communications, public service or advanced academic research, where knowledge of global issues and gender are important. Graduates are prepared to work at all levels of non-governmental organisations, research institutes, government bodies (e.g., UN, EU), and media organisations.
