Department of Gender and Cultural Studies
Welcome to the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies home page! The Department is part of the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Here you can find out all about our teaching and research and also get in touch with staff and postgraduate researchers.
Undergraduate and Honours
The Department offers two distinct undergraduate majors – one in Cultural Studies and one in Gender Studies - that can be taken within your Bachelor of Arts degree. You can also do one or more subjects offered by our department to enrich another major.
For potential students who already have an undergraduate degree (or equivalent), we also offer Honours programs in Cultural Studies and Gender Studies and a joint Honours program.
The Department offers a one year Master of Cultural Studies program, which can also be taken part time. The MCS offers specialisations in: cultural studies in gender; media, culture and society; culture, diversity and difference; and cultural debates. Within that program you can also choose from two shorter courses – the Graduate Diploma and the Graduate Certificate. We offer flexible class times and dedicated support and mentoring, especially for returning and international students.
Our staff have an outstanding research record spanning a range of fields in Gender Studies and Cultural Studies. Go to the staff links to find out more about our research projects and publications, or to contact a staff member. We're particularly proud of the postgraduate research culture in the Department - please check our postgraduate pages for more information.
