Internship: Joint Degree Gender Studies

Internship: 2 subject Master Gender Studies

Gender knowledge, gender competence, and diversity competence are needed in many career fields. The Gender Studies Master allows for a well founded and interdisciplinary program that deals with themes such as social inequality, heterogeneity in society, and inclusion.

How these themes play into various career fields can be explored through internship opportunities. An internship helps, not only in accruing experience, but also in the question of career choice, and helps ease the transition into the work force.

Internship opportunities

In the course of the Gender Studies Masters Program an internship for credit is possible: In the 2 subject master an internship is obligatory (a duration of 6 weeks or 240 hours); In the single subject master an internship is also obligatory (a duration of 4 weeks or 160 hours).
