Open uni: Gender stud­ies
Some of the studies in the Master's program in Gender Studies are offered as open university studies to anyone interested in the subject.

Gender and sexuality often structure our daily lives imperceptibly. Discussions about women and men, femininity and masculinity, gender roles and the related perceptions of equality take place both privately and in various media. Issues also arise in social debates.

In gender studies, issues are addressed through research and analysis. The studies provide an overview of the background, starting points and theories of gender research, as well as the approaches and achievements to date. The studies also examine the changing society from the multidisciplinary approach of gender research and identify and study various inequalities in culture and working life.
