Here I Study
What it means to attend a Lutheran college or university
Lutheran theology, with its emphasis on questioning and exploring, offers a sure foundation for higher education.
From the introduction: So, you're thinking about choosing a Lutheran college or university to call home for the next four years. Well, let me introduce myself. I am Martin Luther, the guy Lutherans are named after. Now don't confuse me with the civil rights leader who lived in the 1960s — that was Martin Luther King, Jr. I lived some 500 years ago in the eastern part of Germany. Along with being a professor of religion at Wittenberg University, I served as a pastor on the campus and in the city of Wittenberg.
The reformation of the Catholic Church I started began in 1517 as a debate on the campus of Wittenberg University. Partly because of that academic beginning, Lutherans have always had a deep commitment to education at all levels, including colleges and universities.
I am glad you are thinking about being a part of this Lutheran tradition of higher education, but before you begin, here are a few things you might want to know about Lutherans and how we approach education.
