"Gender Studies" MA program which is working in cooperation with Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Center for Women’s Studies and Faculty of Business and Economics Department of Economics does not include any similar or alternative to other universities in the TRNC. In this context, "Gender Studies" is an interdisciplinary graduate program which can bring together the graduates of science branches such as History, Geography, Literature, Architecture, Economy, Media, Music, Health, Law, Engineering, Sociology and Educational Sciences etc. This feature allows the program to accept a wide range of students. With the growing awareness of gender equality, gender and women's issues in society, the program has a flexible structure that can be shaped by those who want to work in this area, enabling them to develop different studies on gender studies at local, national and global scale. The general framework of the "Gender Studies" graduate program is to undertake deep, competent work in the field of gender. This program, which is able to carry out field research related to many social and science fields, aims to train graduates who are considering becoming career experts in many international or national institutions, as well as academicians and researchers in the gender field.
The program is also in line with the researches and activities carried out by the EMU Center for Women's Studies and will be supported by congresses, workshops and its own international journal (Kadın / Woman 2000 Journal for Women's Studies).
