Taught MA Programme
The MA in Sexuality Studies is a unique, interdisciplinary, postgraduate programme offering specialist theoretical training in issues relating to all sexualities in the Irish, European and global contexts. It is jointly established by the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, and the School of Nursing and Human Sciences.
DCU offers the first MA in Sexuality Studies (MASS) in Ireland. This innovative and original programme investigates all sexualities from the perspectives of the Arts, Health, Humanities, Literature, and Social Sciences.
The MA in Sexuality Studies is a joint venture between DCU's School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS) and the School of Nursing and Human Sciences (SNHS). As a result, the programme provides a lively and vibrant platform upon which sexuality-related issues are discussed from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
The mission of the first MA in Sexuality Studies of Ireland is to advance cross-disciplinary teaching, research, and advocacy in sexuality studies, sexual literacy, well-being and social justice, with the specific objectives of providing students with knowledge about: (i) processes and variations in sexual cultures, sexual identities and gender-role formation; (ii) the social, cultural, historical, and ethical foundations of sexuality at personal and societal levels; and (iii) sexual health.
Postgraduate students undertaking the MA in Sexuality Studies are also encouraged to actively participate in the several sexuality-related seminars, events and conferences which are organised under the aegis of EROSS.
MASS is offered on a one-year full-time or a two-year part-time basis. For more information, please visit: http://www.dcu.ie/prospective/deginfo.php?classname=MASS
