Bryan College works to create an atmosphere that fosters personal commitment to Christ. All philosophies and policies stem from the Statement of Belief.
Bryan strives to integrate faith into the classroom. Professors open with prayer and steep their classes with love for Christ and for his Word. And in addition to major related courses, students take Bible classes alongside the core curriculum that defines a liberal arts education.
A Bryan education cultivates a deepening love for God and His Truth through every facet of college life–from the classroom to the athletic fields, on our campuses and through partnerships around the world. We believe a Christian worldview necessitates an education about all of reality.
