Where the wisdom of tradition is applied in the innovative context of the West Coast

Associated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary is the only Lutheran seminary in the western half of the United States. PLTS is a founding member of the Graduate Theological Union, a consortium of 19 seminaries and research centers in partnership with the UC Berkeley.

The resulting context in which we work and study is an interfaith and cross-cultural experience.
