The NU Library staff is committed to supporting research and education and encourages users to think critically when applying the information and recommendations in this manual to their projects and research needs.


The fourth technological revolution is bringing changes to the direction and structure of world science. The content of the socio-humanitarian direction has expanded and new concepts of education have appeared. Gender education is one of the rapidly developing areas of public and social education. Gender education, which began in the second half of the 20th century in Western countries, was implemented in Kazakhstan from the first years of independence. The operation of research centers focused on gender studies has influenced the formation of education in this field. Now half of the higher education institutions are conducting subjects with gender content. Their main direction and fields are expanding. At first, the scope of gender education, which included only sociological direction, was filled with politics, economics, philology, and history. However, in Kazakhstan, interdisciplinary connections are not visible in gender education, the direction of gender education is not completely separated.
