The Master in Gender Studies is designed to equip students with concepts and instruments to understand and analyse current social trends. The general approach is based on the fact that social interaction between the sexes is a key dimension of all societies and is therefore vital to social analysis. Given the interdisciplinary nature of gender studies, a number of disciplines (e.g. sociology, history, anthropology, political science, economics, law and education) are discussed in relation to gender issues and social change.
