Founded by businessman and evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody in 1886, the Moody Bible Institute (MBI) is an institution dedicated to Christian higher education. The school developed out of a partnership in 1870 with Emma Dryer, principal and teacher at the Illinois State Normal University, who had begun a Bible study program for young woman in Chicago. Years later, Moody expanded Dryer's ministry program to men and women, originally known as the Chicago Evangelization Society.
Students living in student housing or an off campus apartment at the MBI have access to the school's 11 undergraduate departments which offer degrees in Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Associates of Biblical Studies and Bachelor of Music. Graduate programs include Master of Arts, Master of Divinity and Master of Ministry. MBI's primary programs are in education, broadcasting and publishing.
Student living and university living at MBI adhere to the school's Student Life Guideline, which provides rules and regulations for enrolled students both on and off campus. As broadcasting is a major interest at MBI, the school boasts an impressive radio program, known as Moody Radio. The station is one of the largest Christian networks in the country. The school's location also allows students easy access to Chicago's various cultural, recreational, educational and commercial districts like Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Grant Park, the Loop and the Field Museum.
