Fully Online Graduate Certificate in Restorative Justice & Chaplaincy
After three years of program success and increased interest, we are taking our Restorative Justice emphasis online as a stand-alone graduate certificate offered in-person or online each quarter.

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.
