Academic Distinction

Academic innovation, applied multidisciplinary learning, and global perspective are hallmarks of a Bryant University education.

Bryant University’s distinctive multi-disciplinary curriculum integrates business with the arts and sciences, a global perspective, and a focus on character and ethics.

Through this combination of scholarly rigor, expansive thinking,and meaningful practice, students gain a deep understanding of their chosen disciplines as well as the interconnectedness of nations and cultures, which prepares them to address the emerging needs of industry and society. 

A Bryant education conveys not just knowledge but values; develops not just technical skills but critical thinking and reasoning ability in a global context; and inspires not just competence but the qualities of character and leadership and a culture of service to others. This transformational education inspires and empowers students to truly make a difference in the world. 

“We are preparing our students with a solid base of knowledge and a multi-disciplinary skill set that will enable and empower them to successfully navigate a world that is changing in ways that we cannot predict. The goal is to ensure that Bryant graduates will be intrepid explorers in a world of unlimited global opportunity – truly at home in the world.”
