The Andrew E. Slaby, MD, PhD, MPH School of Spiritual Care
Our Spiritual Care degree focus allows professional care providers to expand their education to include working with a person’s spiritual needs as well as their biological, psychological, and sociological needs.
Birthed from SCA’s relationship with the Westberg Institute, the SCA UTS has partnered with key experts in both the fields of nursing and spiritual care to bring to those who are interested in parish nursing, faith community nursing, or interfaith nursing, an intense degree in the art of spiritual care from a nursing vantage point.
Individuals who choose to earn a degree in thanatology are people who want to focus on the bio-psycho-socio-spiritual aspects and mechanisms surrounding individuals who are dying and transitioning to the next life.
The Master of Divinity degree in Pastoral Ministry is targeted to the professional chaplain, spiritual director, spiritual care provider, thanatologist and other professionals who want to utilize worship, ritual, liturgy, preaching, and theological reflection to assist in their ministry.
The SCA University of Theology and Spirituality (UTS) is a progressive, inter-spiritual, interdenominational, inter-faith, and holistic based center for higher learning that endeavors to educate and assist in the development of forward-thinking leaders and practitioners of Spiritual Care.
