Women’s Studies

The Women’s Studies program is founded on United’s long involvement with women’s issues in church and society and our commitment to gender equality. Creating a place to explore the great diversity of women’s experiences as they inform contemporary religion, theology and ministry is the guiding vision of this program.

The core of the Women’s Studies program is the Master of Arts concentration in Women’s Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry and the Master of Divinity concentration in Women’s Studies: Religion, Theology, Ministry, which provide a rich combination of academic coursework and a variety of forums for intellectual and spiritual renewal. We focus on discovering the wholeness of life and experience - on communal and individual transformation.

Twelve women faculty representing six denominations offer courses in their areas of expertise, along with feminist and womanist theologians from other academic institutions who are invited to teach courses throughout each academic year.

The annual Susan Draper White Lectures in Women's Studies are held each spring and are designed to bring to United a nationally known speaker on feminist thought.
