The Master of Arts in Women’s Studies in Religion introduces students to women’s issues across religious traditions and a wide variety of feminist scholarship in this richly expanding field.
The MA in Women’s Studies in Religion is designed to introduce students to the field of feminist scholarship in religion. Our program addresses a vital need for more scholars whose training addresses gender and identity and how different religious traditions approach sexuality and spirituality. As is true of other CGU programs, the program gives you the flexibility to design your own course of study in line with core courses that will introduce you to important methodologies in these fields. You will study and build close working relationships with expert faculty-scholars, learning side by side with doctoral students as you prepare to become a teacher, enter a doctoral program, or consider careers outside academia.
