About

Department of gender Studies

The department attracts students from a range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, and focuses on integrative and comparative approaches to gender studies. Programs aim to critically examine past and present developments related to gender in culture and society. The curriculum in the department emphasizes interdisciplinary scholarship on gender and sexuality, particularly in areas such as nationalism, post/ state socialism, queer theory, science studies, literature and popular culture, transnational connections, social movements, war and memory, and policy and global inequalities.

The MA in Gender Studie program from Central European University (CEU) offers a comprehensive focus of study for students with a first degree in a traditional discipline and some prior knowledge in gender analysis. Students undertake coursework in an interdisciplinary range of mandatory and elective classes that examine gender in symbolic, social and theoretical terms. Coursework is followed by an independent, original research component—a Master's thesis written under the supervision of two faculty members. Fellowships and tuition waivers are available.

Career Path

Graduates find employment as researchers, teachers and experts on gender affairs at universities, governmental organizations, NGOs, and the private sector, or continue their studies at CEU or other academic institutions.
