Question the concepts surrounding gender and international development on Warwick's MA. Offered by Warwick's Sociology Department, you will be able to choose from a wide range of cutting-edge specialist modules, looking out how gender is cross-cut by other differences, including sexuality, race and social class. Course overview If you are interested in questioning the concepts of gender and development, and giving priority to issues and debates identified within specific countries – rather than relying on predominantly western literature – then this is the programme for you. It is an international, interdisciplinary and analytical course. It does not assume that development is about the ‘third world’ modelling itself on the west, nor about women modelling themselves on men.
