Gender and Diversity*


Information about the degree program

New challenges are emerging in society, politics and business to face the increased complexity and diversity in society and to do justice to it. Action is increasingly based on global references and orientations. The English-language degree program Gender and Diversity, B.A., deals with these processes of change. In the interdisciplinary course, you will learn scientific methods and theories to examine these developments. In addition, a wide range of instruments as well as specific skills are taught to deal with the so-emerging challenges - especially in organizations, institutions and companies.

In the context of globalization, organizations, companies and individuals as well as nation states are increasingly orienting and networking internationally. In the world of work, employees experience this in the form of higher mobility requirements. Mobility and migration are increasingly becoming strategies for employees in their careers. Societies are increasingly characterized by the heterogeneity of life forms.

The diversity of societies insists not only on the multiplication of life forms, but also due to the fact that they belong to different social groups - be it based on age, gender, nationality or migration background, or be it due to religion. Gender - the construction of gender and gender relations - can be seen as a central mechanism in the production of social reality. This is - beyond organizations and companies - of importance for different areas of society.
