In the Utrecht Master in Gender Studies, you'll learn to develop and implement sustainable perspectives in emancipation policies, diversity management, cultural initiatives and political activism.

Emancipation, the recognition of differences, and awareness of intersections of gender with other factors of identity making (class, race, age, sexuality, etc.) are crucial tools in analysing social and cultural relations in today's postcolonial and post-secular societies.

Our Master's programme in Gender Studies provides you with an interdisciplinary understanding of these tools, as well as advanced analytical skills. You will be trained within an internationally diverse cohort of students and academic staff to become a professionally successful 'agent of change'.

Your Master starts with the NOI♀SE Summer School, a week of lectures, work groups, and social activities that takes place in the last week of August. In your first year, you take two compulsory courses to familiarise you with the theoretical and methodological frameworks of Gender Studies, two elective courses, in which you will focus on themes and topics such as art and affect, postcoloniality, or new technologies. In your second year, you will do an internship and write an academic thesis.
