About PIU

Philadelphia International University is a Christian university, and as such, we provide a quality education from the context of our Christian heritage for both traditional students as well as working professionals. Their faculty are gifted men and women who minister as much through research and writing as through local church involvement but their primary ministry is teaching and caring for students. To help our students find their purpose and achieve their full potential, we integrate our Christian worldview into everything we do.
