Program Description

In this master in Inequality and Society (MSc), you'll explore the nature of intersectionality, including how factors such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, and others come together and how certain groups face unique forms of disadvantage. You'll develop as a researcher and work out strategies that can be used to change the unequal world in which we live in order to help to achieve equity and social justice.

Take advantage of a broad range of optional modules which explore the nature of inequality further, examining topics such as gender, activism, social justice, mental and physical health, sexualities and gender identities, media exclusions, childhood inequalities, and socio-economic inequalities. We are proud of our ‘internationalizing of the curriculum’ approach where topics explored will be from national to global in their outlook. Our modules in this master in Inequality and Society (MSc) have been aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

You'll have opportunities in the master in Inequality and Society (MSc) to develop your own employability skills and depending on your chosen modules, to learn skills such as conference speaking, using social research software such as Nvivo and SPSS, writing a report for global bodies such as the United Nations, writing a campaign strategy for an activist movement and developing electronic resources such as blogs, podcasts and YouTube clips.
