Gender studies are an interdisciplinary area in the fields of social sciences and humanities. Its interdisciplinarity mobilizes many approaches: psychological, philosophical, historical, sociological, cultural, communications and others. Gender studies seeks to understand, interpret and offer alternatives to the models of patriarchy and gender asymmetry. It is engaged in achieving bigger gender equality, rather than just a simple interpretation of gender relations. Our study program covers philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, political studies, psychoanalytic theory, poststructuralist theories of identity and semiotics, focusing on structuralism, Marxism and applied social research.
