The Society for Women in Scholarship (SWS) is a student-led group of female seminarians dedicated to academic excellence and scholarly discussion.
The SWS serves to cultivate theological dialogue, academic excellence, and professional development among masters and doctoral students. The Society is open to women of all degree programs.
Among the main goals of SWS is mentoring and creating community among Southwestern women, between female doctoral and master’s students, and between scholars and seminary women. Activities include student paper presentations, discussion of relevant theological questions, and topics in professional development.
Master of Divinity student Mojade Adejokun chairs the eight-member SWS leadership team, and Katie McCoy, assistant professor of theology in women’s studies, is the sponsoring professor.
