Welcome to the website of the MA Program Gender, Intersectionality and Politics

Starting in winter semester 2019/20, the Otto Suhr Institute offers a new consecutive master's program in the field of gender studies in political science with a focus on intersectionality.The master's program Gender, Intersectionality and Politics not only deepens theoretical and methodological knowledge within the field of gender studies, but also conveys solid specialist knowledge about the structural, non-material and normative foundations of gender and diversity policy in various social, institutional and political contexts. The program enables students to implement the category of gender 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 an interdisciplinary and trans-regional deepening of knowledge also enables an interdisciplinary expansion of political science research competences.
