Religion as a Support Factor for Women of Color Pursuing Science Degrees: Implications for Science Teacher Educators
This study examines the factors women of color utilized as supports as part of their persistence in science majors. This article draws from a larger study of sixteen African-American, Hispanic, and African women who were navigating various undergraduate science majors at multiple colleges in the Northeast and Southeast United States. The findings illustrated that the participants viewed religion as a contributor to general support, stress relief, encouragement during difficult times, and intervention. The author concludes that the findings illustrate that one potential mechanism for broadening science participation may be through connections with students’ families, their cultural backgrounds, and even their religious views.
