Masters in Gender History

The Masters in Gender History provides the opportunity to develop and deepen analysis of the workings of gender in the past. Alongside the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Gender History, which brings together one of the largest concentrations of gender historians in the UK, the programme encourages comparisons across time and cultures as well as allowing in-depth research into particular questions.MSc Poster for twitter

Research degrees

We offer research supervisions for the degrees of MPhil by Research and PhD. As the largest number of gender historians in any Higher Education institution in the UK we offer prospective students a lively, supportive and intellectually challenging environment for research.

We hold a regular seminar series and the Centre is now the UK home of the international journal Gender & History.  Our research students organise the Hufton Gender Reading Group which draws together postgraduates in gender history from a number of Scottish Universities.

Research facilities and support for research in gender history at Glasgow are unrivalled. In addition to primary source repositories in Scotland (National Archives of ScotlandNational Library of ScotlandMitchell Library) we have strong links with Glasgow Women's Library and Women's History Scotland, the principal organisation for women's and gender historians in Scotland.
