MA Program at UF; Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research

This is a modified portion of a message from the incredible UF Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research on their fabulous MA program.  I am one of the faculty affiliated with the Center, and can attest to the Center being an awesome group doing incredible work!

Each year, the Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research at the University of Florida admits a small group of graduate students to the MA program, which offers a vibrant and diverse faculty, flexible requirements, and excellent preparation for those wishing to go on for doctoral work or professional employment. Areas of expertise are noted on the flyer, and include gender and sexuality studies, transnational feminism, postcolonial theory, health and medicine, media studies, social movements, literature and culture, and more. The Center enjoys close relationships with other programs including African American Studies, African Studies, Latin American Studies, and Asian American Studies, as well as the major disciplinary departments at UF. In addition to twelve core faculty members, the Center has over 100 affiliated faculty members who offer cross-listed courses, serve on graduate committees, and collaborate in other ways with the Center.

The program offers innovative teaching and research, both Thesis and Non-Thesis MAs, combined MA/JD option, access to Graduate Assistantships with tuition remission, and faculty who work closely with graduate students at a major state university that is known for its wide range of specializations. Students may choose MA committee members from core and affiliate faculty, giving them broad opportunities for professional development. Graduates of the program have gone on to employment in teaching and research, nongovernmental organizations, social services, advocacy, journalism and the media, and to a variety of PhD programs.

Gainesville, Florida is a great location for graduate studies as it is a medium-sized university town with a host of resources and welcoming climate. Students come from around the country and internationally, and find UF and the wider community to provide a progressive, affordable, and culturally rich environment in which to live. Many students elect to carry out internships in local organizations that offer academic credit and valuable hands-on experience, preparing them for post-graduate employment and active participation as global citizens.

The deadline for consideration for admission and funding is February 1st, 2017. Please visit our website at http://www.wst.ufl.edu/ for more information. Inquiries about our graduate program may be made to the Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Kendal Broad at klbroad@ufl.edu.
