Academic Programs

In partnership with twelve seminaries across the country, SCUPE offers four academic programs in pastoral ministry and community development. Our educational programs, deeply rooted in the philosophy of experiential education, are designed to address the unique needs of urban ministry and developing communities. SCUPE also partners with churches and community organizations to provide students with practical experience.

The Advanced Latino/a Theological Education (ALTE) program provides Latino/a church leaders, who possess varying levels of education, the access to graduate theological education.

The Center for African American Theological Studies (CAATS) offers a three-year Master of Divinity degree with an African-centered approach to theology in partnership with the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and Payne Theological Seminary.

The Graduate Theological Urban Studies (GTUS) program links traditional theological education with hands-on urban ministry experience through numerous courses and internships.

The Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Development (MASJCD), a program designed by practitioners for practitioners, offers courses, certificates and masters degrees for individuals interested in community building, community organizing, congregational community development and housing and economic development.

SCUPE also has two non-accredited programs that are offered as resources to students, pastors, lay leaders engaged in urban ministry.  These are:

The Congress on Urban Ministry

Continuing Education Workshops
