Welcome to Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries (GPPM)

The Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries at SCU seeks to transform hearts and lives through the engagement of theology and ministry for competence, conscience, and compassion in accompanying others. We are excited to announce that we now offer a new Graduate Certificate in Restorative Justice and Chaplaincy along with the MA degree and the Diaconate Education programs. Lifelong faith formation is a part of the course offerings in all of the degree options.

Our programs will challenge you to engage in theological reflection, take risks, and take charge. Study what you love with colleagues involved in ministry.
