Gender Studies is an academic discipline with deep roots and an enormous resonance in the contemporary world. The field is constantly developing, and new research themes, journals and programs keep emerging, testifying to the profound and far-reaching significance of the knowledge produced. At the same time, we also witness a huge backlash against feminisms, women’s rights, LGBTQI rights, and Gender Studies themselves – from attempts to ban abortion rights and the establishment of so-called “LGBTQ free zones” in EU countries, to the use of the term “gender ideology” to reject basic scientific insights about sex and gender, and official refusals to recognize Gender Studies as an academic discipline.
In this broader context, the Department of Gender Studies at CEU strives to meet the growing demand for knowledge and expertise in gender issues by providing both Master's and doctoral level programs in Gender Studies, as well as serving as a base for non-degree studies and other activities in the field. On the Master’s level we offer a one-year MA degree and a two-year MA in Critical Gender Studies, and we are partners in MATILDA (two-year European MA in Women’s and Gender History) and GEMMA (two-year Erasmus Mundus Master´s Degree in Women's and Gender Studies). In addition, we offer a PhD in Comparative Gender Studies. Gender Studies faculty also teach in the CEU’s new BA programs. Read more
