The master's degree in Women, Gender and Citizenship is an interdisciplinary course promoted by the Inter-University Institute of Women's Studies and Gender Research (IIEDG) and taught through a specific agreement between eight Catalan universities: the University of Barcelona (coordinator), the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the University of Girona, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Rovira i Virgili University, the University of Vic, the University of Lleida, and Pompeu Fabra University.
This is an official, interuniversity master's degree with a total study load of 90 credits and two specializations:
- Theory, Criticism and Culture
- Women, Work and Public Policy
The degree can be studied as a face-to-face course or as an on-line course. The degree structure, specializations, subject areas and subjects are the same in both options. Students taking the on-line option will work via the Virtual Campus.
The course comprises a compulsory subject area with a study load of 20 credits for each specialization; three optional/common subject areas with a total study load of 35 credits for each specialization; and a final project with a study load of 15 credits.

Learning objectives

The general aim of this master's degree is to train researchers and professionals who can incorporate the gender perspective into research, teaching and governance, and thus contribute to promoting equality and improving the well-being of women and men in a fair and equitable society. This twofold aim is reflected in the two specializations offered.
The specialization in Theory, Criticism and Culture trains researchers and professionals capable of integrating a gender perspective into research, teaching and professional practice in all areas of scientific and technical knowledge and in the social and human sciences.
The specialization in Women, Work and Public Policies trains professionals capable of contributing to the design, implementation and evaluation of public policies from a feminist gender perspective, as well as the design, implementation and evaluation of equality plans.
