Department of Gender Studies / Charles University in Prague / Czech Republic
About (English translation):
The philosophy of Gender Studies at the School of Humanities at Charles University in Prague (FHS UK) rests in offering the opportunity for a systematic academic study of theoretical and methodological tools for researching and exploring gender issues in historical perspective, with a consideration of cultural and ethnic aspects of a given topic. Currently, FHS UK offers a M.A. program in Gender Studies with a long-term goal of broadening the program by a study on a Ph.D. level as well. In addition, the department also offers a range of gender related courses on the B.A. level, open to all interested students at FHS UK and other schools and universities. The department also cooperates with other research centers, schools and universities in the Czech Republic, namely the School of Social Studies at Masaryk University in Brno, the School of Philosophy at Charles University in Prague, the National Contact Center for Women in Science of the Sociological Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences and others, as well as foreign universities and institutions abroad. The department is also open to and welcomes exchange students and faculty from academic exchange programs from Slovakia, as well as the Erasmu/Socrates and Fulbright programs.
