Put Your Future Forward

With nearly 6,000 students, we’re an unexpected size. We’re in an unexpectedly vibrant city. We’re unexpectedly affordable. And we follow a proven approach to teaching, learning and personal development that is unexpected.

We're the right size to offer more opportunities than small schools and more personal experiences than large ones. We’re an exceptional value for both strong academics and real-world experiences. In fact, we guarantee it. At Bradley, you won't just have the possibility of getting an internship, studying abroad, participating in undergraduate research or another real-world experience - we guarantee it. All Bradley graduates are required to have at least two of these types of experiences before they graduate. Required experiential learning. That's a big difference.
