Equality legislation underlines that gender equality should be mainstreamed in service provision, policy and research. This specialisation is not currently available at an advanced level and the objective of this programme is to promote it among potential service providers, policy makers, researchers and employers.

The programme of studies for the course consists of a taught component totaling 60 ECTS credits and a research component to which 30 ECTS credits are assigned.

The aim of this programme is to introduce students to key spaces by engaging in and attending study-units on:

Epistemologies in Gender Studies, Research Methods in Gender Studies, Gender Based Violence, Gender and Culture and Gender and Social Justice. The programme is designed as having a predominantly taught component, culminating with a research element in the form of a dissertation, which allows the student to engage at a deeper level in a particular area of interest with a selected supervisor.

Students are expected to cover all the prescribed readings and participate fully in all activities related to the programme. Students are advised to keep pace with the work set, allowing sufficient time for any research work and/or revision.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

The programme is designed to support people who wish to broaden their worldview, as they build their career - within government departments, ministries and agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and private companies. Government policy is based on gender mainstreaming and gender mainstreaming is essential in order to access EU Funds, attain higher visibility and inject equity into all spheres of work. Candidates will return to their discipline with a solid understanding of how gender plays a significant and mainstreamed role in that area.
