Welcome to the Faculty of Theology at the University of Geneva
A WELL-KNOWN FACULTY WITHIN A PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITY
Since the creation of Geneva's Academy by John Calvin in 1559, generations of students have come to Geneva to study theology. Today there are about 170 students studying at various levels. The University of Geneva's Faculty of Theology is the largest institution dedicated to the study of Christian theology in the Protestant francophone academic world.
We welcome inquiries by potential PhD students who are not French-speaking and who wish to remain in other regions of the world as they pursue their doctoral studies, and we are in the process of broadening our course offering so as to include Master (MA) level courses in English these coming years.
The University of Geneva is Switzerland's third-largest university. It is a member of the League of European Research Universities, which includes academic institutions such as Amsterdam, Cambridge, Heidelberg, Helsinki and Milan. It is among the best universities in continental Europe according to international rankings (Newsweek, Times Higher Education, Shanghai University, etc.). In 2014, it was ranked by Times Higher Education as the 2nd most international university in the world.
