In the multidisciplinary minor Gender and Diversity you will learn how to critically perceive contemporary discussions in science and society, from the perspective of gender and diversity. You will gain knowledge of the relevant theories on gender, race, ethnicity and sexuality, in the disciplinary fields of history, philosophy, literature, medicine, sociology and anthropology, and religious studies. You will develop a diverse perspective in discussions with students from other disciplines in the classroom. In assignments you are going to apply the knowledge achieved, to your own disciplinary field.
You choose two out of these three courses:
The minor Gender and Diversity is a university minor, which means you do not need permission from your own Exam Committee (except VUmc-students).
Also Bachelor students of other universities are welcome to attend this minor.
Please note that in this case you should obtain permission from your home university.
