Disciplines Involved

The options on offer in the area of required optional subjects are put together from widely differing disciplines.

In order to maintain the interdisciplinary character of the Master’s program and to respond to the different disciplinary interests of the students, the goal is to integrate as many disciplines as possible.

Currently, the following disciplines are involved:

  • English Studies
  • Biology
  • Pedagogy
  • Ethnology
  • Geography
  • German Studies
  • History
  • Indian Studies
  • Islamic Studies
  • Japanese Studies
  • Art History
  • Philosophy
  • Political Studies
  • Popular Culture
  • Psychology
  • Communications Studies
  • Legal Studies
  • Religious Studies
  • Romance Studies
  • Chinese Studies
  • Slavic Studies
  • Sociology
  • Theology

Beyond this, the options for study benefit from the close cooperation of the Master’s program with other Gender study programs at Swiss universities, which open their courses to students from the University of Zurich.
