The Universidade Metodista de São Paulo (Methodist University of São Paulo), also known as "UMESP" or simply "Metodista", is a private university based primarily in the city of São Bernardo do Campo, in the São Paulo state of Brazil.

Metodista currently enrolls over 18,000 students, with most popular programs in the areas of communications and theology.


Metodista traces its history to 1938, when the Methodists created the Methodist Church Theology College by the Anchieta highway, in São Bernardo do Campo.

As the city grew, so did the college, which began to offer additional programs of study. In 1970, the Instituto Metodista de Ensino Superior ("Methodist Institute of Higher Education", IMS) was created and in 1997, and the institution gained university status.

Graduation programs[edit]

The school offers 40 different graduation and over 60 post-grad programs. It also offers K through 11 programs.


The university has, in total, three campi in São Bernardo and one in São Paulo:
