Women's Spirituality Program
An online MA and an online PhD Programs
The Women’s Spirituality and Women, Gender, Spirituality, and Social Justice programs are adapting to the jolts caused by COVID-19. Our program retreat and orientation (8/24/20) and our program intensive (8/27/20 – 9/1/20) will be held virtually. WSE/WGS and CIIS are committed to the development of student-scholars dedicated to meeting the challenges of personal, community, and global transformation in the 21st century. For more information, please contact our Program Coordinator, Violeta Krasnic (email@example.com).

We do not espouse a singular spiritual framework nor a singular approach to feminism; rather, we support students in undertaking their own rigorous inquiry both within and beyond these fields.
We currently offer two degrees:
