Admission Requirements

1. Submit Relevant Documents

Submit a motivation letter, your CV, proof of English competency at B2 level or higher, and an academic paper in English before the application deadline. You have until March 15 to submit these documents - however, make sure that your application is submitted by the application deadline, February 28!

  • Motivation Letter (500 - 700 words)

  • Structured CV

  • Proof of English Competency: Applicants should submit proof of English competency at min. B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The applicant's level of English should be substantiated by an international certificate (IELTS, TOEFL, Oxford Test of English, etc.) or a similar national certificate. Applicants whose previous BA studies were fully taught and assessed in English can also use their diploma as proof of English competency in case it specifies English as the language of tuition.

  • Academic Paper: The paper should be no less than 15 pages in length and prove your knowledge, skills, and talent for study in the program for which you are applying. The paper can be your defended bachelor’s thesis or its summary, an article published in an academic journal, or any new essay that you choose to represent you and your academic knowledge.

2. Proof of Previous Education

After you have been admitted by the department you will be asked to complete the second admission requirement - submitting proof of your previous education. In the case of our MA programs, we ask you to submit proof of completed undergraduate education which can be proven by a Bachelor's diploma.

 

Do not worry if you have not yet received your diploma at the time when you are submitting your online application - you have until September 30 to complete this requirement.

Diploma Recognition

If you graduated outside of the Czech Republic, your diploma needs to go through a process of recognition or nostrification. This process validates that the diploma you are submitting is equivalent to a diploma you would receive after finishing school in the Czech Republic.

 

You can choose from two options:

  • Recognition by the Faculty

  • Nostrifcation

Master's program

Gender Studies

Our MA program in Gender Studies offers the opportunity for a systematic, interdisciplinary, and intersectional study of gender issues from a historical perspective with a consideration of cultural and ethnic aspects of any given topic. The focus is on the analysis of manifestations of the gender order, the influence of feminist and queer theories, the relationship between gender and other categories of social differentiation.

The full-time study program is taught in person at the Faculty in Prague. This means that your classes will be scheduled throughout the week at the Faculty headquarters.

The language of tuition is English. The standard length of study is 2 years.

The application deadline is February 28, 2023. Make sure that you officially submit and close your online application by midnight (Central European time)! No late submissions are accepted.
