Gender Studies

Would you like a study that opens several doors in to the labour market? A master's degree in Gender studies will give you the ability to work independently on central issues related to gender, feminism, gender equality, power and knowledge production.

This is an interdisciplinary and flexible programme where students have the option to combine gender courses at the Centre for Gender Research with courses from other units. In their study programme, students progress from working with general and basic issues, via courses that provide specialisation and knowledge of new areas, and in the end work independently with the thesis.

Most of the courses in the first year of the study programme are directly or indirectly part of the preparation for the work with the thesis. During the second year students can concentrate on their thesis. The topic for the Master’s thesis must be chosen in agreement with, and be approved by, the teacher. Supervision includes assistance in choosing the topic and the main research questions, finding source materials, and help with structure and presentation.
