GEMMA is the first Erasmus Mundus Master in Women's and Gender Studies in Europe. It is, therefore, a master of excellence supported by the European Commission which selected it as Erasmus Mundus from within 160 project proposals for 2006.
GEMMA is the achievement of long years of efforts trying to advance in the tuning of our diverse educational structures and create common curricula in Women's and Gender Studies. The eight partner institutions represent seven European countries with different locations and cultures across all Europe: University of Granada (Spain, Co-ordinator), University of Bologna (Italy), Central European University (Hungary), University of Hull (United Kingdom), Institutum Studiorum Humanitatis (Slovenia), University of Lodz (Poland), University of Oviedo (Spain) and University of Utrecht (Netherlands).GEMMA is an interdisciplinary programme that provides high quality academic education and professional competences for personnel working or intending to work in the areas of Women's Studies, Gender Studies and Equal Opportunities across Europe. It collects our best offers both from the humanities and social sciences, making it attractive to students and offering a wide span of options and combinations. Courses are taught by the most distinguished and highly recognized professors in the fields of research at each one of the departments involved.GEMMA provides a unique opportunity to benefit from mobility as students are expected to study at different European universities. This inter-university and interdisciplinary postgraduate programme gives a unique possibility to obtain a double diploma from the home and mobility university acknowledged by all GEMMA Consortium members.Third Country Students Erasmus Mundus scholarship (category A)
