The programme is designed to enable students to understand how gender and culture shape individuals and communities and in turn are shaped by them. Gender and Cultural studies engage students in the study of gender and the intersection of gender with other substantive categories of analysis and identity which include race, sexuality, class, disability, nationality, gender roles across historical periods and in different cultural contexts.

Cultural Studies is a field grounded in critical theory and examines key issues in the cultural debates and explores how the various concepts of culture can be applied to the study of everyday life. Cultural Studies go beyond accounts of gender to examining the complex constructions in various cultural arenas, and varying global processes. The programme creates opportunities for interpretations of the various literary texts of various historical periods, including the present.

Thus, Cultural Studies seeks to understand the ways in which meaning is generated, disseminated, and produced through various practices, beliefs, institutions and political, economic, or social structures within a given culture.
