M.Div. Concentration in Women’s Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry
Updated 4/17/13 - changes are effective immediately

Requirements of the Concentration

The following requirements enable students to reach the educational outcomes of the Women's Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry concentration:

  • Foundational course: TR408 Introduction to Feminist Theologies
  • Four elective courses in Women’s Studies and Religion. Elective courses may be selected from those approved for this concentration, or students may ask a faculty member to include a track in another course that would explicitly address one or more of the concentration educational outcomes. Faculty have discretion to decide that tracking is not appropriate for a given course. If the faculty member agrees, some course readings and/or assignments would be tailored to allow the course to meet a concentration elective requirement. This would be noted on the registration form. Please see the registration bulletin for courses approved for the Women's Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry concentration.

Educational Outcomes of the Concentration

In addition to achieving the basic outcomes of the M.Div. degree, a graduate of the Women’s Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry concentration will:

  • be able to articulate a broad understanding of the experiences of women in the history of Christianity and with how women have shaped, and been shaped by, the Christian tradition(s) and contemporary religious practice;
  • be able to articulate a broad understanding of the multiple ways women are participating in, and shaping, contemporary theological reflection; and
  • be able to articulate in ecclesiology and a theology of ministry that takes account of the experiences and perspectives of women in the life of the church and in the church’s theological reflection.
