Gender Curricula

The database has been in existence since 2007. It prepares subject-specific gender studies teaching content for almost 60 curricula. Originally conceived to support the gender-equitable implementation of Bachelor's and Master's programmes and the gender-equitable accreditation of degrees, the database has created a unique compendium presenting subject-specific approaches to gender studies for almost all academic subjects available in Germany. From the very beginning, the Coordination and Research Office (CoRe) of the Women's and Gender Studies Network NRW has accompanied the Bologna Process in order to contribute to making universities and colleges as science organisations more gender-equitable. With the Gender Curricula project, CoRe supports the aim of implementing the knowledge of subject-specific gender studies as part of the teaching and study content in Bachelor's and Master's programmes when accrediting or re-accrediting study programmes. The presentation of the gender curricula for almost 60 subjects is a major focus of the database. They include proposals for integrating teaching content from women's and gender studies into the curricula of (almost) all subjects that can be studied in the Federal Republic of Germany.
