Flemish universities launch Master’s in gender and diversity
The government has approved the new degree, which has been under discussion for years
High on the public agenda
The introduction of the degree has been a topic of discussion for several years. “Gender and diversity are two subjects that are getting higher on the public agenda and are increasingly common in the minds of the population and the policy-makers,” Smet said in a press release.
He believes many companies and organisations are in need of expertise on gender and diversity. Graduates will find a job at organisation such as government institutions, the police, army, cultural institutions, political parties, unions, research centres and staff departments at enterprises.
