Gender Diversity Certificate for Bachelor Students

Are you interested in topics related to opportunity and gender justice and social inequality? Would you like to learn more about diverse lifestyles? One way to do so is the Gender Diversity Certificate. The Gender Diversity Certificate is a complementary course of study and is completed in two basic and two advanced courses. The workload comprises 20 CP (four courses of 5 CP each). The regulations for the complementary study program apply.

THINK AROUND THE CORNER. RETHINK. THINK FORWARD.

The certificate enables you

  • to focus on a specific subject within the complementary study program without rendering additional credit points (the current exception is teacher training)
  • to question the underlying norm concepts and stereotypical attributions
  • to consider opportunity and gender justice as contemporary issues in social and professional contexts
  • to critically reflect one's own and others' positioning
  • to perceive more consciously social difference categories as constructions
  • develop your own gender diversity competence as a key qualification necessary for personality and employability

CREATE BASICS

The basic seminar "Theories, Concepts and Fields of Application of Women's and Gender Studies" (5 CP) is always held in the summer semester in the perspective "Practice-oriented Approaches to Social Sciences".

The basic seminar "Theories, Concepts and Fields of Application of Intersectionality and Diversity Research" (5 CP) in the perspective "Mediality-Oriented Approaches to the Social Sciences" always takes place in the winter semester.

Please note that the rules for the complementary studies also apply to the Gender Diversity Certificate. This means that you may only take each module once. The corresponding modules for the basic courses, should be kept free so that these courses can be taken.

CHOOSE FROM A VARIETY OF TOPICS: extension courses

Two additional seminars (2 x 5 CP) of the complementary study program, the so-called extension courses, vary each semester and thus the modular allocation. You can choose a seminar that is suitable for you in terms of topic and time from an average of 20 seminars. An overview of all courses that are currently offered within the framework of the Gender Diversity Certificate and an archive of courses from previous semesters can be found here.
