The Bradley Fellows

The Christian faith has something to say about your academic studies.

What is a Bradley Fellow?

This program helps students learn to think deeply about what their Christian faith has to say to their academic studies.

Fellows will lay the biblical and theological foundation needed to tackle the questions of meaning, purpose, and identity students are guaranteed to encounter in the university.

Combining rich community over home-cooked meals, thoughtful conversation, and Christian spiritual formation, this program helps students to see themselves and their callings in the light of the gospel. This multi-semester program aims to provide a grounding in the best of what the historic Christian tradition says about bringing our whole lives into God’s story for all of creation.

The Fellows program offers students the chance to learn how the church has answered life’s deepest questions:

  • Who is God and what is He doing in the world? (Theology)
  • What does it mean to be human and to bear God’s image? (Anthropology)
  • Who is my neighbor and how should I treat him? (Ethics)
  • What am I to do with the rest of my life? (Vocation)

The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds and denominations.

Why do the Fellows program?

Here’s what your peers think:

“I’ve never felt such a deep intellectual and spiritual connection with a group of people…. there’s a spirit of fellowship that makes me feel comfortable to discuss big topics like, ‘What does it mean to to be human?’ The BSC is a special place with a community I hope to stay involved with even after my academic career!”
