Study Programmes

The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences also offers Gender and Sexuality Studies in the form of a minor within the bachelor and a track within the (Sociology) master, where students can further specialize within the fields of gender and/or sexuality. There is also an introductory as well as a more advanced summer programme. 

  • Master track Sociology: Gender, Sexuality and Society

    The Gender, Sexuality, and Society (GSS) master track explores the significance of gender and sexuality in contemporary societies. This means we conduct theoretical investigations in which gender and sexuality are put firmly on the sociological agenda as crucial categories of analysis in accounting for social reality. It also means we explore themes such as the global crisis of care, homonationalism, non-heteronormative sexualities, and the rise of #metoo movements. We study gender and sexuality in their entanglement with class and race and other critical dimensions of power and inequality.

  • Introduction into Sexuality Studies

    In this summer school, we will study how these concepts impact our relationships within society, and the different theoretical perspectives that have been developed to study their role in social and familial relationships. Students will be equipped with different theoretical perspectives and analytical tools to study these themes critically and reflexively, and in interaction with other social distinctions, such as religion, social class and nationality, within the setting of an international classroom.
