The MA Program in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies serves as a concrete embodiment of one of LAU’s values, namely promoting gender equality and inclusiveness. The program focuses on gender, the socially-constructed understandings of what it means to be female or male, and how understandings of gender affects people across all social categories. This program is built on a foundation of equality, human rights, and social justice. As such, it is inclusive in nature and combines both academic rigor and social activism. By scrutinizing the power differential between females and males, students begin to understand the intersection of other inequalities.
The interdisciplinary MA degree addresses both academic and practical applications of a focus on gender issues, with a view to filling an identified need in the job market. The degree guarantees a high level of academic freedom and integrates gender, along with several themes and concepts that are crucial to understanding gender inequality in the Arab world, such as education, sexuality, health, political representation, economic participation, and so on. Graduates of this program can pursue careers in governmental organizations and ministries as well as national, regional, and international agencies focusing on gender across a broad range of sectors.
Starting fall 2020, Distinguished students can benefit from a full scholarship. Apply before July 15, 2020.
