Incoming Students

Information for the LSE Gender 2019/20 Cohort

Welcome to the Department of Gender Studies

My master’s degree was a journey like no other – intellectually as well as personally. The incredible community at LSE Gender was surely the highlight of my time at LSE, and the powerful political commitment of the Department of Gender Studies demonstrates how a certain type of education can change minds and the world.

LSE Gender 2015/16 Alumna

We’re looking forward to welcoming the 2019/20 cohort of students to the Department in September, and this page contains information to answer your questions and help prepare you for arrival. 

In coming weeks, we will be regularly updating this page to help you prepare for your year ahead. We will be giving you information on life in the Department, preparing for your studies, our events programme and much more.
If you have any questions or if there is anything you’d like us to add then please just email Kate Steward, the Department’s MSc Programmes Manager. 

LSE Welcome

LSE Welcome will take place between Monday 23 September and Friday 27 September 2019 (with some activities starting on Friday 20 September 2019). More information about the wide range of activities on offer here

LSE Gender Welcome Schedule

We have finalised our Welcome schedule of events which include the LSE Gender welcome, key IT info, programme inductions, public lectures, course fair, and more. Apart from registration, these events aren’t compulsory, but we strongly encourage you to attend as they will help you orientate yourself and start to get to know the people you’ll be spending the coming year with.

Recommended readings

You can find indicative readings for all our courses on the Graduate Course Guides - these will be updated for the 2019/20 session soon. 

The 2016/17 cohort compiled a reading list for incoming students – these are the texts that they felt would help you prepare for your time at LSE Gender.

2019-20 Department of Gender Studies MSc Handbook

You will find a link to our LSE Gender Handbook here nearer to the start of the course, with lots of information about all of the courses, staff details, LSE and more.

Get in touch if you have any questions or comments – we look forward to hearing from you!
