Master's Programme: Gender, Culture and Social Change

The Master's Programme Gender, Culture and Social Change treats gender as a hierarchical structural category that is closely connected to categories of ethnicity and social class in post-national and post-colonial constellations.

In this interfaculty master's programme, students acquire interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scientific and vocational abilities that can be applied in both basic and empirical research capacities and in various occupational fields (e.g. education, administration, policy) in many different types of institutions (e.g. national and international organizations, NGOs, non-profit organizations, commercial enterprises).

The programme consists of five mandatory modules in which the theories and history of gender relations are treated in close connection to questions of difference and heterogeneity in migration societies. Furthermore, students complete five of nine elective modules that treat economics, culture and language, ethnicity, media, law, norms and globalization in their gender-specific dimensions and in connection with other social structures. An optional practical training course and the master's thesis complete the programme.
