What is the Women's Spirituality Program?

Founded in 1992 by internationally known trailblazers in the women's spirituality movement, the Women's Spirituality program offers an interdisciplinary, multicultural, decolonial feminist approach to the study of spirituality and religion. Our curriculum incorporates scholarship from women/gender studies, ethnic studies, religious studies, philosophy, religion, and other related fields. We are the first Ph.D. granting graduate program in the United States to integrate a study of the sacred feminine with an examination of contemporary social, political, and ecological issues. 

Our program honors the spiritual impulse to redress the suppression of the sacred feminine and the oppression of women. We join with those who seek to end the exploitation of marginalized social groups and address the suffering of the Earth and its many species. 

We currently offer two degrees:
MA in Women, Gender, Spirituality and Social Justice
PhD in Philosophy and Religion with Concentration in Women's Spirituality
