Global Gender Studies (Development and International Relations/European Studies)

Global Gender Studies (Development and International Relations/European Studies)

Global Gender Studies is a two-year Master’s specialisation at the Department of Politics and Society, Aalborg University, Denmark.

From 2022, the DIR and ES programs will be merged into the new Master of International Relations. We still offer students the possibility of specializing in EU studies, Global Gender Studies or Global China Studies. For more information about the Master of International Relations program, please have a look at the website - Master of International Relations

Gender and related categories of e.g. religion, ethnicity, ‘race’, class and sexuality pose multiple inequalities which are vital for our understanding of development and international relations in a globalising world. Discriminations and inequalities (e.g. at the labour market) can be related to different globalisation processes (e.g. global migration processes) as these can be recognised in different regions and continents of the world.

The Global Gender Studies programme gives a specific focus to gendered perspectives upon structures and processes in international law (including human rights), equality politics on national, transnational and international levels, global democracy and governance, international institutions and transnational actors.


Global Gender Studies can be followed:

  • As a specialisation in the two-year Master’s programme Development and International Relations (DIR)
  • As a specialisation in the two-year Master’s programme European Studies (ES)
  • As two modules of each 5 ECTS as part of the above programmes or other Master’s programmes, for instance Culture, Communication and Globalisation (CCG).

Full degree students begin 1 September.
Guest/exchange students begin 1 September or 1 February.
