The master's degree in Gender, Intersectionality and Politics not only deepens theoretical and methodological knowledge in the field of gender research, but also provides solid specialist knowledge of the structural, ideal and normative foundations of gender and diversity politics in various social, institutional and political contexts. The course enables you to operationalize the gender category for the intersectional analysis of political processes, interactions, structures and institutions in transnational contexts and to apply it in research practice. The additional possibility of interdisciplinary and transregional deepening of knowledge also enables an interdisciplinary expansion of political science research competencies.
