Master’s Programs in Gender Studies, 2014/2015



“ I studied literature before coming to CEU. But
I wanted more of a political and social lens, and
the Gender Studies Department has provided that
for me. I think the way studies are handled allows
the space to develop your own ideas through the
strengths of the faculty as well as the creative
environment of CEU. The faculty have varied
backgrounds—some are anthropologists, some
are sociologists, political scientists, historians,
philosophers—and that makes for a wider range
of topics that can be covered. Here we have
a similar investment in feminism and we
collectively strive to advance society.
It has been a very empowering experience. ”
