Honors Program

The Honors Curriculum

Completion of the full honors program leads to the Bachelor of Arts with Honors degree.

Drury’s honors program is designed to provide rigorous and innovative courses to intellectually ambitious students.  Honors courses enhance the interdisciplinary character of Drury’s Engaging Our World curriculum as well as a student’s major field of study. In addition, the honors senior colloquium and research project allows students to pursue in-depth study in an area of their own design, with the support of Drury faculty.
