Assessment for Year 1

Your achievement on the MA Gender Studies course will be assessed by coursework rather than exams. This will include a range of assignments such as essays, case-study analyses, and research proposals. 

In all your modules you’ll get frequent formative feedback from your tutors – helping you to develop your knowledge and skills before you produce summative work.

Assessment for Year 2

In your core and optional modules in year 2, you’ll continue to be assessed by coursework. Assessments will vary depending on which modules and topics you choose. There will be the opportunity for feedback and tutorials on your written work as you build on the ideas and skills developed during the first year of the programme. The culmination of your MA is the dissertation in which you will have the opportunity to focus, in depth, on a topic of your choice. You will be supervised by lecturers whose research interests intersect with the ideas you want to investigate. Alternatively, you may be able to take your dissertation via a placement where you can explore the concepts and theories you have studied in an environment outside of academia.

Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff.
