Minority Studies

Minority Studies

The minor subject in Minority Studies is a multidisciplinary teaching program that provides students an opportunity to widen their knowledge in the field of broadly understood minority studies. This includes conceptual, methodological, theoretical and thematic competences. It also touches on the concept of minority and the need for it, intersectionality, culture and identity, social justice, diversity, power and privilege, and all kinds of “isms”. Theories and methods in minority research as well as historical and contemporary development of the law on minorities, the so-called old and new minorities, law on religion and minorities, minorities in education and media, and language and cultural support in teaching will be addressed.
