Hi all, I'm looking up programs in the UK that touch on gender, and so far I have stumbled upon these three that look intriguing: 1) Gender and Women's Studies and Sociology MA @ Lancaster University: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/postgraduate-courses/gender-and-womens-studies-and-sociology-ma/ 2) MSc Applied Gender Studies Masters Degree @ University of Strathclyde: https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/appliedgenderstudies/ 3) MLitt, MSc Gender Studies (Applied) @ University of Stirling: https://www.stir.ac.uk/courses/pg-taught/communications-media-culture/gender-studies/ Don't ask me why I'm not planning to apply for higher-tiered schools (I only have a GPA of 3.2 in journalism, though I do have 10 years of advocacy experience in women's rights). Thoughts on my school options? How good are these schools - what are their strengths and weaknesses.
Hi guys! Im interested in understanding how societies condition, control and punish people who step outside the boxes assigned by virtue of their gender, race, orientation, caste, religion, class etc. On understanding the above, I wish to study and research on how individuals can break free of the box drawn up for them, allowing themselves to be their own true, authentic selves. I wish to get a PhD in sociology to help me achieve the above listed broad goals. Which specific research cluster areas should I be looking at? Which colleges are better suited to them? And what research interests of faculty would you suggest I look at? Also, since I don’t have a bachelors degree in sociology, what other information do you think I should know before preparing a shortlist of colleges?
