Spotlight on our research into sex, gender and sexualities

The MSc Sex, Gender and Sexualities has its roots in our University-wide Sex, Gender and Sexualities Research Group. Many of the people involved in the Research Group also teach on our masters programme.

Here, our academics ask really diverse and fascinating questions like: what do Disney princesses tell us about femininity? Why are LGBTQ youth at greater risk of online harm? And what can medieval women tell us about writing?

This new masters programme brings together the expertise, networks and experience of academics across three Schools and Departments at the University of Surrey:

  1. Department of Sociology
  2. School of Literature and Languages
  3. School of Psychology.

As one of our students you will have the opportunity to learn, engage and contribute to further the study of sex, gender and sexualities.
