Bryan's work examines the history and theory of internationalization in higher education, the nature of liberal education, and contested definitions of freedom and democracy in American and global history. His dissertation, The Inner Restoration: Protestants Fighting for the Unity of Truth, 1930–1960, examines the uses of religion in liberal education at Harvard, Princeton, and Yale during the lead up to World War II and the Cold War. It is the first study of "Protestant Idealism"-- a religious system of thought typically associated with the 19th century -- in twentieth-century American higher education. Bryan is also an administrator in global education who has worked at Clark and Brandeis universities in global affairs and exchanges.
