Overview

Gender studies applies intersectional and interdisciplinary perspectives to gender as one of the basic principles organizing human society and culture.

Gender studies focus on analysis of historical, as well as contemporary manifestations, of gender order; influence of feminist and queer theories and methods in scientific research; they also probe the relationship between gender and other categories of social differentiation and stratification such as race, ethnicity, social status, age, sexuality, disability, and others.

One of the specific strengths and an internationally recognized expertize of the Gender Studies programme is the emphasis put on analysis and reflection of post-socialist experiences, gender structuring of the late-socialist Czechoslovak society, and “East European” societies in general.

The English Master's programme in Gender Studies is open to university students from all over the world. The admission procedure is not restricted to students from the European Union and European countries but is open to students from other countries and continents as well. 

At the Faculty of Humanities, we pride ourselves on being a non-discriminatory and fair institution and applicants of all nationalities, ethnicities, cultural, and social backgrounds, ages, and genders are welcome.

Profile of a Graduate

The Master's programme in Gender Studies is specifically conceptualized in a way so that its students obtain relevant knowledge and skills while deepening their understanding of gender constructions and the main principles functioning in society. Students should be able to critically and complexly evaluate the roles and meanings of these constructions in the overall organization of society. 

Likewise, they should be able to assess and analyze consequences of gender roles, constructions, stereotypes of both contemporary and historical position of women and men in society. The goal of the programme is to familiarize its students with gender analysis in diverse areas of social life in order to get them ready for careers in a wide range of professional fields, including state administration, social policy, social and medical care, social and legal work, education and academic work.
