About us

The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is a fully accredited university of theology, located in Amsterdam and Groningen. The PThU stands for solid and relevant theological education and research into developments in faith, church and world Christianity. We do our work out of a strong connection to the church and a fascination for how faith works in people's lives - and that includes the faith of our staff and students.
