Although a fully independent research institute, IBCSR has a unique relationship with Boston University, where its founding directors teach and do research as professors. Some of IBCSR's researchers and fellows are housed within one of BU's schools or departments. In a testament to the interdisciplinary vibrancy of the university along the south bank of the Charles, the Graduate Division of Religious Studies offers a uniquely broad and deep PhD program in Religion and Science. Students must master a dizzying array of subjects, including secular religious studies, the history and philosophy of science, and a specific scientific field, including significant lab experience. Most students also build significant expertise in philosophy of religion, from Abrahamic or Greek to Vedic or Chinese traditions. Some students in the Religion and Science PhD program are IBCSR fellows, including Lindamood Fellows. Learn more below.
