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.
