Course content

The master’s programme in Gender Studies - Intersectionality and Change prepares students to act as agents for change, i.e. to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures in academic careers in higher education, as well as in national and international organisations, media, communication or politics.

The programme focuses on intersectional gender, i.e. gender in interplay with other social categorizations and power differentials such as ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, age, (dis)ability etc. The programme will give you the opportunity to explore how processes of social and cultural change can be initiated or sustained by integrating a critical understanding of intersectional gender, by counteracting multiple inequalities and processes of discrimination, and by other kinds of transformative work.

The aim is to provide students with knowledge of theories and methodologies in Gender Studies - Intersectionality and Change, and to enable them to develop academic skills to analyse and to intervene innovatively and professionally in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society.

The programme builds on international research traditions. It is linked to the excellent and internationally renowned milieu for intersectional gender research at the Unit of Gender Studies, Linköping University. This is one of the largest interdisciplinary research and teaching units for Intersectional Gender Studies in the Nordic countries with a staff of more than 30 researchers, including four full professors and many PhD students.

The programme is innovative in its cutting edge approach to intersectional gender research and teaching, as well as in its strong focus on professional development and career paths. It combines online distance education with intensive on-campus seminars. The programme is also offered to the students as a campus-based education. More traditional pedagogical formats are mixed with those that focus on written and spoken performances which challenge traditional boundaries between academic and creative writing, speaking and intervening.

The programme is designed for both Swedish and international students with a bachelor’s degree in humanities or social sciences. Students attending the programme have different educational or professional backgrounds.
