About the Conference

This annual conference celebrates students from the School of Biblical and Theological Studies and their research and accomplishments. The conference is a time for faculty, students, and guests to come together to engage in discussions and fellowship.
The Wheaton College History of Christianity and Theology M.A. programs present an annual Graduate Student Research Conference during the Spring semester of each academic year. Graduate students in the History of Christianity and Theology programs are given the opportunity share their original research and writing in a professional, collegial setting among their peers and professors. More recently, the conference has expanded to include students from other institutions, increasing the breadth and depth of exposure, conversation, and diversity. Topics range chronologically from the early Christian church to the modern period. A highlight of each year is the keynote address, presented by a top scholar in the field of Christian History or Theology. 

This event is generously sponsored by the M.A. in History of Christianity and Theology Programs and the School of Biblical and Theological Studies.
