Resolution: 3625 de 12 de abril de 2012
Code SNIES: 101636

In view of the present situation of excluding several emotional options, carried out by certain Public Policies in certain regional, national and international contexts, which entails the violation of the Human Rights and the increase of Gender Based Violence, the University of Medellin has responded to the problem by offering the course Especialización en Estudios de Género (Specialization Course in Gender Studies), in the belief that the creation of a just society should be based on discussion and analysis. This Specialization Course in Gender Studies is the first one in the city of Medellin and focuses on two fundamental categories: Human Development and Social Innovation.

Objective

The principal aim consists in providing the theoretical and methodological instruments that an expert in Gender Studies needs in order to obtain a deeper comprehension of the concept of gender and the social situation in which this phenomenon confronts the problem of exclusion.

Abilities

To bring up experts in Gender Studies implies teaching basic analytic, interpretative and rhetoric skills, which are necessary when facing challenges imposed by the environment regarding equality, recognition and justice. In other words, learning these abilities means acquiring specific academic instruments that are used in the area of Gender Studies.
