About SKOK

The Centre for Women’s and Gender Research (SKOK) is an interdisciplinary research centre that aims to provide knowledge about these fields of research to all the faculties at the University of Bergen. SKOK’s main objective is to strengthen women’s and gender research at the university at large. SKOK aspires to function as a vital arena for researchers not only at our own university, but also to serve as a link to other research communities, both nationally and internationally. One of SKOK’s main goals is to secure a long term interdisciplinary competence building in this field of research. SKOK also offers a bachelor program in gender studies, a one-year program in gender studies and doctoral education within the field.
