History, Philosophy & Religion

Drury University > History, Philosophy & Religion

Each program provides a challenging academic curriculum, mentorship, advising, and study abroad opportunities. Outside the classroom, students are offered a wide range of extra-curricular activities, from student clubs, academic honor societies, and internships.

Engaged learning is a focus of the Department through our Senior Capstone research project that culminates in an annual undergraduate conference where research projects are presented to the university community and public. Participating in this semester-long research project allows students to create a scholarly professional portfolio and participate in one-on-one work with faculty to build skills for the professional world or graduate school.

Students are also actively involved in the Humanities and Ethics Center, the Humanities Blog, and the Humanities House. Study abroad opportunities bring new cultural experiences. Students emerge from our programs with an informed sense of culture and shared experiences as they make connections between past and present.
