The Master's Degree in Women, Gender and CitizenshipStudies is an interdisciplinary degree promoted by the Inter-university Institute for Women and GenderStudies (IIEDG). The main objective of the degree is to provide scientifically rigorous training in women and genderstudies that can also be applied to current issues in society.
The master's degree has two specialisations:

* - Theory, Criticism and Culture
* - Women, Work and Public Policies


The Official Masters Degree in Women, Gender and Citizenship Studies is an interdisciplinary Masters qualification promoted by the Inter-University Women and Gender Studies Institute (IIEDG) which has an agreement with eight participating Catalan universities: University of Barcelona (coordinator), Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Girona, UPC Barcelona-Tech, Rovira i Virgili University, University of Vic, Universitat of Lleida and Pompeu Fabra University.

Duration 2 years. (90 ECTS)

Type of education: Full-time

The Masters degree has a teaching load of 90 ECTS credits and is designed to be studied over two academic years (60 credits for each year). However, students can matriculate to earn between 20 and 60 ECTS credits per academic year. The number of credits specified at matriculation will determine each students workload in hours.

1 ECTS credit is equivalent to a workload of 25-30 hours, so 60 ECTS credits require full-time study, this being estimated at a minimum of 1500 study hours per year.
