The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) is a membership organization of more than 270 graduate schools that conduct postbaccalaureate professional and academic degree programs to educate persons for the practice of ministry and for teaching and research in the theological disciplines. The Commission on Accrediting of ATS accredits the schools and approves the degree programs they offer.
The ATS membership welcomes schools in the Christian and Jewish faiths, and includes the full range of Christian denominations—including schools in mainline and evangelical Protestant and Roman Catholic and Orthodox traditions—as well as multidenominational and nondenominational schools. Schools representing other faiths and other organizations interested in theological education may become Affiliates of ATS.
In addition, ATS offers educational events and other resources designed to assist member schools with identification of best practices, development of peer networks, production of research, and exploration of data. See upcoming event offerings below or search under Resources in the main menu above.
Lilly Endowment Inc. announced that it will make available $87.5 million in grant funding to ATS-accredited schools this year.
