Abstract

The aim of this article is to investigate to what exten the gender-perspective is included in Swedish Bachelor study programs in Systems Science. A study of four study programs with adhering syllabuses is conducted and the syllabuses identified are analyzed with a set of keywords as indicators of the gender-perspective as well as a more interpretative analysis in search for indication of the incorporation of the gender-perspective. The result of the study conducted is that gender is not present to any larger extent in the syllabuses and that it is likely that the gender-perspectives has not had any bigger influence on Informatics. It is claimed in this article that if the gender-perspective will have a ny impact it must makes it way in to the syllabuses and be reiterated in both study program syllabuses and course syllabuses.
