Agents for Change: Introducing the online master’s in Gender Studies at Linköping University
You learn to challenge norms and structures in education, organisations, media and politics. The programme focusses in intersectional gender – gender in interplay with other social categorisation such as ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, age, (dis)ability etc.
Students taking the programme usually have a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds, for example in sociology, teaching, psychology, political science, and business administration. The programme is offered as a one-year option, 60 credits, or a two-year option, 120 credits.
The programme combines online distance education with three mandatory on-campus gatherings per academic year. You will interact with your teachers and fellow programme members in a digital classroom. The forms of instruction, which are based primarily on the use of the internet, place greater demands on your own activity than a purely campus-based programme.
You will be equipped for a career in higher education and research as well as professional work with intersectional gender in organisations, media, communication and politics. This programme is also appropriate for you who want to boost your current career through further training within gender work.
