Overview

Become an analytically skilled 'agent of change'

How do gender, race, class, sexuality and age contribute to the formation of social identities? What role do ensuing power differences between these factors play in our globalised and mediatised world? What measures have been taken, in the past and the present, in order to prevent discrimination and exclusion? And how do academic, cultural, artistic, journalistic, and policy-making institutions respond to these societal challenges?

Theory and practice

Your education in gender studies will combine theoretical knowledge with its practical application in all parts of the programme. 

You will develop research skills through intensive coursework and participate in an internship that combines your subject matter interests with professional experience. Theory and practice come together in your final thesis project, which serves to synthesise your one-year experience in gender studies at Utrecht University .

After graduation

After completing the Gender Studies  programme at Utrecht University, you will be able to develop sustainable perspectives for future research and action, and have the motivation and knowledge to implement these perspectives in emancipation policies, diversity management, social and cultural initiatives, and political activism.

Career Prospects

The insights from gender studies and emancipation research are useful to a growing number of organisations and companies seeking to develop and/or critically reflect upon policies to effectively intervene on behalf of specific target groups and market segments.

Our programme provides connections to an extensive network of national and international contacts and organisations within and outside academia, thus guaranteeing a variety of professional opportunities to our students.
