The Honors Program exemplifies the best that Drury has to offer: small classes, personal attention, vibrant student-faculty interactions, liberal arts inquiry, and “hands on” learning. The Honors Program will provide the academic support and mentoring to foster academic excellence among Honor students and to prepare them for success in graduate school, business, and the professions. Successful completion of the Honors Program earns a student a Degree with Honors.
In addition to specialized honors courses, research opportunities, and Honors Student Association events, honors students receive additional benefits to help you to achieve your personal, academic, and social goals.
Welcome to the Honors Program at Drury University! The Honors Program has a 30+ year history of helping honors students achieve their personal, academic and professional goals.
Our program is inspired by the words of Socrates: “Wisdom Begins in Wonder.” This means that we aim to build on the natural curiosity and wonder that honors students possess and help them develop their abilities, so that they can become leaders who can harness their wisdom to solve problems and live meaningful and successful lives. Honors students graduate with outstanding research and communications that allow them to flourish in their chosen profession or graduate school.
We seek students who are curious, independent, ambitious, hard-workers, and intellectually engaged with the world of ideas.
The benefits of completing the honors program include:
