Program Overview

Program Description:

MA in Gender Studies / 1 year

The one-year MA program in Gender Studies at Central European University (CEU) offers a condensed grounding in interdisciplinary gender studies for students with substantial previous background in gender studies or a related field (a minimum of a four-year BA is required). Applicants are asked to demonstrate their formal or informal exposure to some aspect of gender studies, along with evidence of initial thinking about a broad area of research. 

The program aims at developing independent and critical thinkers with a broad basic knowledge of gender studies and the skills to approach gender as a key element of social and symbolic order at the local and the global levels. In keeping with these goals, the program introduces students to major theoretical and methodological approaches to gender studies from a range of disciplines.

The present faculty includes scholars trained in history, sociology, socio-cultural anthropology, political science, international relations, philosophy, literature, legal studies, rhetoric, and cultural studies. MA students are thus expected to develop their scholarly perspectives through an interdisciplinary lens and beyond their immediate fields of interest.

Cost:
12,000 EUR.
