GEMMA: Master in Women's and Gender Studies is a joint European multidisciplinary programme which provides high quality academic education and professional competencies for students wanting to conduct further research or intending to work in the areas of women's studies, gender studies and equal opportunities.
This European Master is unique in the way it brings together approaches to feminism from all cardinal points in Europe.
Created as a result of concerted efforts on the part of several universities working together within the Socrates Thematic Network ATHENA, it brings together the expertise on postgraduate studies of all the institutions involved.
In its composition the GEMMA consortium represents the harmonisation of eight different institutions from seven different European countries:
University of Granada (coordinator),
University of Bolonia,
Central European University of Budapest,
University of Hull,
Institutum Studiorum Humanitatis,
University of Lodz,
University of Oviedo and University of Utrecht.
GEMMA is thus the fine tuning of North European, South European and Central European higher education institutions where Women’s and Gender studies is one of the main elements in their postgraduate offer.
The languages used by the consortium universities are English, Italian and Spanish.
