MSc Gender, Development and Globalisation (part-time)

To Study or Not to Study Gender?

At this point, two years ago, I was browsing through LSE’s postgraduate course list almost everyday. If time and money weren’t an issue, I would have studied so many courses but this is no ideal world. So in the end, I settled for MSc Gender, Development and Globalisation.

Is this the real life? Is this just LSE?
