Gender, Genders: Equality and Parity in Society and Work

What is a Minor

A Minor is a taught study course composed of three modules of 6 ECTS each, that allow you to widen your studies with a glimpse at subjects that fall outside of your principal subject.
Passing the three exams required by the Minor, you will get a certification of the course you attended.

Objective and contents 

The specific scope of the Minor is to spread the understanding of the questions linked to gender, starting with theoretic and cultural dimensions and ending with the concrete aspects of society and daily life linked to behaviour, education, family and work life, as well as political and social participation.

You will examine in depth the questions tied to legality, equality and stereotypes in various aspects of society and of both Italian and international culture, and will outline the actions and policies acting in favour of the changes that guarantee the best possible relationship between genders.

The specific aspects include: the pedagogy of gender and epistemology of their differences; gender equality in the business market, as well as the results from education, academics and in work environments (gender balance), welfare and both international and family rights; community and national regulations, the tools for sustaining them (commissions and committees for equal opportunity, advice) the necessary measures for their application; and finally, cases of discrimination or of good practice.

This Minor is taught in Italian.


The Minor is aimed at any student enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree programme at the university.
