Welcome to Gender Studies!
The Unit of Gender Studies is a unit for interdisciplinary and thematic gender research and education at the Department of Thematic Studies, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Linköping University. We offer a PhD programme in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies and undergraduate courses at bachelor's and master's level.

Research and education of the Unit of Gender Studies put focus on meanings of gender in culture, society, economics, technology, knowledge production, and science from an interdisciplinary perspective. Gender is studied in its intersections with other social categories (ethnicity, sexuality etc.). Six sub programmes are pursued (click the titles for more information):

The National Secretariat for Gender Research has organized a series of studies of Swedish gender studies education. In a recently published report within this series, gender studies alumni have responded to survey questions and participated in focus group interviews, to provide a picture of the connections between gender studies education, ways of perceiving the competencies specific to gender studies, and experiences from the working life that for many alumni have followed after their education.
