The Diploma in Gender and Development Studies is a three-semester taught programme. This programme will equip students to better understand and apply current approaches to feminist theorising and activism, and better utilize gender tools in the workplace. It aims to maximise the development of students’ understanding of fundamental areas in the fields of Gender and Development Studies. The course content is equivalent to the first year of the MSc programme. Postgraduate Diploma students are required to complete twenty-four (24) credits consisting of five core courses and one elective. The elective should be chosen through advising with the Graduate Studies Coordinator.
Diploma to MSc: Students who have completed the Postgraduate Diploma may apply for the MSc Programme. If accepted, they will be exempted from 18 credits and would therefore have to complete two additional courses, one elective, research seminar, and the research project or internship.
