Master's Scholarships in Gender Studies

Central European University - Department of Gender Studies

Who we are

Bringing together a multitude of perspectives, we encourage students to rethink and deepen their understanding of the world through a critical examination of gender in culture and society across geographic and historical contexts. Our curriculum bridges the humanities and social sciences and nurtures debate and interdisciplinary scholarship on gender and sexuality. We actively cooperate with other leading institutions in the field and are part of two international consortia, which offer various study abroad opportunities to our students.

What we offer 

MA in Gender Studies / 1 YEAR / This intensive program is for students who have a four-year bachelor’s degree and some grounding in gender studies or a related field. The program will introduce you to the major theoretical and methodological approaches to the field from a range of disciplines, including history, sociology, international relations, legal studies and literature, leading to original research on your chosen topic. 

MA in Critical Gender Studies / 2 YEARS / This program is designed for applicants with a three-year bachelor’s degree or with limited background in gender studies.
