Issues concerning work in relation to gender (intersectionality) and ethnicity are also covered.
The teaching is based on student active working methods. Accordingly, the teaching takes the form of, for example, lectures, individual and group exercises, as well as through supervision.

Written examination comprises an individual assignment and group work. The course is examined in two parts. A passing grade in the course requires a passing grade in both parts of the examination.
