Hungarian govt abolishes gender studies as it is useless in the country’s job market

Hungarian govt abolishes gender studies as it is useless in the country’s job market, by Voice of Europe.

At the beginning of the week Hungarian universities received 24 hours from the Ministry of Human Capacities (EMMI) and the Ministry of Justice (IM) to comment on a proposed amendment, which declares that no gender studies courses can be launched in the future …

It will mean that nobody can attend gender studies courses in Hungary and get a degree in the subject.

The Ministry of Human Capacities told HVG.hu later today that there is absolutely no interest for gender studies graduates in the Hungarian job market. EMMI added that the course is economically irrational, so they assume that it’s not launched to give the students useful knowledge, but it serves other interests. …

Christian Democratic members of the government have been criticising gender studies courses, according to them it’s an ideology, not science.

Fighting back.
