What is offered by the Studies Programme „Intersektionalitätsstudien und Diversity-Kompetenzen“?

The Studies Programme „Intersektionalitätsstudien und Diversity-Kompetenzen“ teaches basic competencies and knowledges that offer tools to grasp the multilayeredness of power structures. Moreover, it teaches strategies to overcome discrimination and to move towards inclusion. The spectre of such competencies enriches professional profiles in various realms such as human resources, education, medial, economy and law.

What are the specifics of the program?
This is the first programme of its kind in Germany. You may study gender, queer or postcolonial studies elsewhere, but this programme offers the intersection thereof. Due to its inter- and transdisciplinary nature it is easily compatible with diverse studies programmes such sociology, engineering, anthropology, geography, anthropology, biology, law or economics. The gaol of this program is to provide the student with the necessary knowledge about the whereabouts of discrimination and the strategies to face and subvert it. What is power, what is privilege, how does resistance function and what is diversity all about? The program delves into latest trends of intersectional studies, bridging theory and empirical fields. It combines seminars and lectures, project and workshops, building on local expertise and that of international scholars and activists.
