Overview

About

Do you want to change the world? Do you want to challenge social and cultural norms about gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, age and functionality? Are you interested in working with issues of gender and equality in your everyday practice? If you have a background or interest in feminist theory and want to be a positive change in society, then apply for the master’s programme in Gendering Practices.

The Gendering Practices programme of the University of Gothenburg will help you develop a reflexive approach to your practical work, and provide you with methodological insights into the field of Gender Studies and research. The programme is structured around the conviction that gender studies is an interdisciplinary field, and that theory and practice are intertwined.
