The Drury Core curriculum has two parts: common requirements and divisional requirements.

1.   Common requirements include the following:

  • CORE-101: The Drury Seminar (3 hours)
  • Drury Foundations (3 hours)
  • CORE-103: Drury Explorations (1 hour)
  • CORE-201/202/203/204: Global Foundations (3 hours)
  • Ethical Foundations (3 hours)
  • Foreign Language (6 hours)
  • EXSP-220: Personal Wellness (2 hours)
  • Writing in the Major (completed through the major)
  • Engaged Learning (2 experiences)

2.   Divisional Requirements include following:

  • Six credit hours in the Social Sciences (three in Human Behavior; three in Institutions and Organizations)
  • Six credit hours in the Fine Arts (three in Interpretation; three in Invention)
  • Six credit hours in Science and Math (three in Science and Discovery; three in Explorations)
  • Six credit hours in Humanities

Students must also complete a Global Challenges requirement, which includes coursework with a significant global component. The requirement is met by taking four courses tagged as such (“G-tagged”) in at least three divisions. Some G-tagged courses meet divisional requirements, some may be taken to fulfill major degree requirements, and some may be taken for elective credit.
