Programme description Child Studies is an interdisciplinary master’s programme that focusses on the critical study of questions related to children and childhood. The programme is mainly taught online, with some short campus periods. The programme can be taken as a one-year master’s degree (60 credits) or a two‑year master’s degree (120 credits). A core focus of the programme is how to apply the latest research findings in order to critically review, develop and improve policies and practices related to children and childhood. The programme further provides the theoretical and methodological tools that prepare students for designing, planning and conducting research in topics that concern children, childhood and families. The programme is hosted by the internationally renowned research department in Child Studies at Linköping University, which has conducted research in child and childhood studies since 1988. The teachers on the programme are active researchers, which guarantees that cutting-edge knowledge is presented in all courses. Broaden and deepen your knowledge The programme comprises one year of full-time studies (60 credits option) or two years (120 credits option). Both years include a research methods course and a master’s thesis course. This means that you can either finish your studies with a one-year master’s degree or continue to take the second year and obtain a two-year master’s degree. During the first term, you will be introduced to the interdisciplinary field of child studies with a special focus on historical, anthropological and sociological perspectives. Each of the three courses introduces you to a methodological approach to child studies. You will learn more about how to design and conduct a research study in child studies during the two courses on methodology (terms 2 and 4), which will prepare you for your master’s theses – one in year one and one in year two. For each thesis you will have an individually appointed thesis supervisor. The remaining courses of the programme are dedicated to various areas in child studies including: children’s rights, parents and the family, education and school, migration, culture, the media, and health. These courses will give you a broad knowledge about the various questions that concern the lives of children, and they will deepen your knowledge of methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives in child studies. Online and on-campus training Most of the courses are taught online with the aid of a digital learning platform. Most of the course literature is also accessible on-line through the electronic resources of the LiU library. This allows for some flexibility as to where and when you conduct your studies. The programme has high academic standards, however, and requires full-time study. In addition to online tuition, the programme comprises five campus periods of durations between 2 and 5 days, which are mandatory for all students. The campus periods comprise both academic seminars and social activities, during which students get to know each other and the teachers on the programme. This will facilitate online communication throughout the rest of the programme.

The programme prepares professionals in the fields of, for example, education, politics, social work and care, who are equipped with cutting-edge knowledge in issues dealing with children and their living conditions. Graduates can also follow a career in research or continue their studies towards doctoral degree. [-]

The programme is offered as a one‑year option, 60 credits, or a two-year option, 120 credits. [+]

This is a full-time programme that focusses on intersectional gender, i.e. gender and its interplay with other social categorisations and power differentials such as ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, age, and (dis)ability. The programme is offered as a one‑year option, 60 credits, or a two-year option, 120 credits. This is a full-time programme that gives you the opportunity to explore how processes of social and cultural change can be initiated or sustained by integrating a critical understanding of intersectional gender, by counteracting multiple inequalities and processes of discrimination, and by other kinds of transformative work. You will learn how to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures. The programme combines online distance education with intensive mandatory on-campus gatherings. You will interact with your teachers and fellow programme members via a digital classroom. Three mandatory on-campus weeks will be held each year, the first one at the start of the programme. Programme description The programme focusses on intersectional gender, i.e. gender and its interplay with other social categorisations and power differentials such as ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, age, and (dis)ability. The programme is offered as a one‑year option, 60 credits, or a two-year option, 120 credits. This is a full-time programme that gives you the opportunity to explore how processes of social and cultural change can be initiated or sustained by integrating a critical understanding of intersectional gender, by counteracting multiple inequalities and processes of discrimination and by other kinds of transformative work. You will learn how to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures. Students taking the programme usually have a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds, for example in sociology, teaching, psychology, political science, and business administration. The programme provides you with knowledge of theories and methodologies in gender studies – intersectionality and change, and enables you to develop academic skills to analyse and to intervene innovatively and professionally in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society. A key ambition is to offer opportunities to reflect on and develop an understanding of the links between activism, theory, professional development and career paths. Online and on-campus gatherings The programme combines online distance education with intensive mandatory on-campus gatherings. You will interact with your teachers and fellow programme members via a digital classroom. Three mandatory on-campus weeks will be held each year, the first one at the start of the programme. The courses consist of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, supervisions and course assignments, both in the on‑campus classroom and online. In addition to this, you are expected to engage in independent studies. The forms of instruction, which are based primarily on the use of the internet, place greater demands on your own activity than a purely campus-based programme. Learning environment The teachers draw on their own research in their teaching, for example on cultural practices and representations, methodological intersectional interventions, knowledge production, postcolonial feminisms, equality work, masculinities, and sexualities. We mix traditional teaching formats with formats that are not found in the conventional academic toolbox. We encourage, for example, written and spoken performances that challenge traditional boundaries between academic and creative writing, speaking and intervening. We encourage you to draw on your own experiences and to contribute to developing the content of seminars. We give you the opportunity to work in tutorial groups; i.e. students are divided into smaller groups that discuss various topics with a tutor. We want you to write reflection journals during some of the courses. To give you the latest update on current research, we invite you to take part in our seminars at the Unit for Gender Studies, an excellent and internationally renowned milieu for intersectional gender research. This is one of the largest interdisciplinary research and teaching units for intersectional gender studies in the Nordic countries with a staff of more than 30 researchers, including four full professors and many PhD students. Career opportunities As a student of the master’s programme in Gender Studies – Intersectionality and Change you will be prepared for a career in higher education and research as well as professional work with intersectional gender in organisations, media, communication and politics. This programme can also develop your current career through further training within gender work. Below follows some examples of jobs of some of our alumni: Tess Consoli, PhD student, University of Massachusetts, Boston, School for Global Inclusion and Social Development.
