About the Programmes

Centre for Research on Women and Gender (KANITA) offers postgraduate studies programmes for those interested in pursuing women's or gender studies by research. Upon completion of the studies, students are awarded with Doctor of Philosophy (Gender Studies) or Master of Social Sciences (Gender Studies) degree. Programmes are designed to produce graduates who are gender-sensitive in various work cultures and organisations, equipping those from various basic disciplines with knowledge and analytical skills of looking at the social world through a more comprehensive and inclusive manner.

The postgraduate programmes at KANITA aims at developing and enhancing candidates' analytical and practical skills in their chosen disciplines through the use of the gender lense.
