Profile B.A. Gender Studies Minor

Gender studies is an interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary and internationally oriented field of science and research that understands “gender” as a category of critical analysis in science, culture and society. It is concerned with topics such as gender-specific division of labour and gender pay gap, discrimination and justice, different ways of life and lifestyles or gender images in various media and their influence on everyday life, as well as generally with the conditions and interpretations of gender and gender relations in different historical, social and political contexts.

Frankfurt Peculiarities

Quality Assurance through System Accreditation

As a quality assurance process, accreditation at Goethe University Frankfurt aims to ensure high-quality degree programmes. In Hesse, degree programmes are generally accredited, in accordance with Section 12 (2) Hessian Higher Education Act, before teaching operations commence. Since the university was accepted for system accreditation, accreditation has been conducted as an internal (re)accreditation process when degree programmes are established or continued.
