Founded in 1959 and recognized as a Hispanic-Serving Institution in 2016, California Lutheran University is home to more than 2,592 undergraduate and 1,174 graduate students who come from more than 59 countries and represent a wide variety of faiths.
Our dedicated, accomplished faculty works with small classes of students who are open-minded—about ideas, about people, and about faith—and are seeking to grow as individuals.
Both in the classroom and outside of it, everyone at Cal Lutheran is committed to helping each student pursue their passions to discover their purpose, and follow that purpose to transform their community—and the world.
Cal Lutheran's main 225-acre Thousand Oaks campus (located between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara) is complemented by four satellite centers in Oxnard, Santa Maria, Westlake Village, and Woodland Hills.
Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, located in Berkeley, California, is one of eight seminaries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a founding member of the Graduate Theological Union.
Our small size and welcoming community make us a special destination for international students from over 50 countries. At Acadia, you'll enjoy small class sizes, opportunities to participate in research, a top-rated Co-operative Education program, and individual attention from your professors.
