                       Drury University was founded by Congregationalists in 1873 and is in covenant as a church-relat-
                       ed university with the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The
                       university is proud of the heritage and traditions that result from these associations.
                         As a church-related university, Drury has a chaplain, provides voluntary opportunities for
                       worship and is committed to the development of the whole person, including spiritual and ethi-
                       cal development.
                       m i s s i o n s t a te m e n t
                       Drury is an independent university, church-related, grounded in the liberal arts tradition
                       and committed to personalized education in a community of scholars who value the arts of
                       teaching and learning.

                       The commitment of the graduate programs at Drury University is to the highest quality of
                       education for the highest caliber of students through the best and most dedicated of faculty.
                       The programs serve a small number of students who continue on to receive doctorates, but
                       primarily serve students as a terminal degree.
                          One of the goals of the program is to provide students with the ability, incentive, interests
                       and background to become lifelong learners. Drury graduate programs strive to help students
                       develop the skills and abilities to continue learning and adapting to the changing world.
                       The method includes the development of self-discipline through a highly rigorous academic
                       program. It is expected that graduate programs will be more demanding in time, effort and
                       intellectual ability than undergraduate programs. The programs have meaning because they
                       demand the very best from the students.
                          The graduate programs, like the undergraduate programs, have a strong commitment to
                       liberal arts education. It is the nature of Drury’s graduate programs that students are provided
                       with the experience and skills to move into careers. The awareness of actual job expectations

                                                                                                                     o v e r v i e w
in the preparation of students to meet those expectations is a part of this philosophy. At the same time,
the graduate programs recognize the need for an understanding of the theoretical bases for the areas of
study, and they recognize the importance of research. Each student learns something about researching
methods in his or her discipline as part of the graduate education, and all students are expected to do
some research as part of their programs.
   Throughout all of the courses and assignments in the graduate programs, students are encouraged to
develop a breadth of perspective. The synthesis of information from other disciplines is an important goal
of the faculty in the graduate programs; students need to have experience with such synthesis and to see
models for doing this. All careers require value judgments, and the faculty of Drury University are com-
mitted to helping students explore questions and issues of ethics and values as part of their education. In
addition, it is recognized that the successful person in our changing world must have the ability to think
clearly and critically, to solve problems and to communicate clearly. The Drury graduate programs have
general commitments to help develop those skills as part of the student’s education.
P E R S O N A L I Z E D E D U C AT I O N
The graduate programs, like the undergraduate programs, have a commitment to meeting the needs of
each student in the program. Faculty members work closely with students to help identify their needs and
career goals and to make the education serve those needs and goals. Drury University is committed to
providing a close relationship among faculty members and the student to allow each student to achieve
his or her greatest potential.

                       Master in Business Administration
                       John Taylor, director

                       analytical thinking and managerial problem solving. Extensive use is made of the case method
                       and business simulations. An undergraduate degree in business administration is not required for
                       admission to the program. Courses are offered in the evening. A brochure describing the M.B.A.
                       program may be obtained by contacting the Breech School of Business Administration at (417)
                       873-7614. The Breech School MBA program is nationally accredited by the Association of Colle-
                       giate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), and is working to achieve accreditation by AACSB
                       International, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
                       Master of Arts in Communication
                       Curt Gilstrap, director
                       The Master of Arts in Communication with Emphases in Integrated Strategic Communication and
                       Organizational Leadership and Change requires 30 hours of credit, usually taken in 10 courses.
                       Each emphasis has a core of courses required of all students. Elective courses are selcted, in con-
                       sultation with the student’s advisor, from a list of professional or liberal arts electives. Coursework
                       may be completed through full-time or part-time enrollment and by taking a combination of both
                       seated and online classes. An undergraduate degree incommunication is not required for admis-
                       sion to the program.
                       The M.A. in Communication enables working professionals and marketing, business and com-
                       munication students success in becoming knowledgeable communication managers. The major
                       objective of the progrmam is to produce communicators who understand the importance of
                       communication integration and who can manage all forms and aspects of an organization’s com-
                       munication.
                       Master of Arts in Criminology/Master of Science in Criminal Justice
                       Jana Bufkin, director
                       The master in criminology/criminal justice program consists of 30 (M.A.) or 36 (M.S.) semester
                       hours of graduate study that may be completed in two calendar years. For the student who
                       has had no prior background in criminology/criminal justice in their undergraduate work, the
                       program consists of up to 48 semester hours.
                          The program is carefully integrated with the undergraduate program and grows out of the
                       institutional commitment to the liberal arts. It is intended to provide sound preparation for
                       careers while at the same time provide the breadth of perspective and flexibility that character-
                       ize the liberal arts graduate. The program and the faculty are seen as a significant enrichment to
                       the undergraduate program, and the graduate and undergraduate programs are intended to be
                       mutually supportive.
                       Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory
                       Tom Parker, director
                       The Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory consists of three, two-month summer sessions of
                       intense studio engagement. Each summer, students complete six credits of studio art and three
                       credits of theory and criticism (nine total per summer), plus a spring-term online Omega Seminar,
                       resulting in 30-credit hours of work for which (after an acceptable thesis exhibition), a master of
                       arts degree in studio art and theory is granted.
                          The curriculum is designed to offer the post-baccalaureate student a venue for creating signifi-
                       cant studio work in a supportive and collaborative environment. It could be useful for the student
                       developing a portfolio for entrance into a M.F.A. program, or the degree could provide a post-
                       certification credential for public school teachers seeking to ascend their “career ladders.” Missouri
                       school boards consider the Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory an appropriate and sufficient
                       degree for that purpose.

education degree (M.Ed.). The graduate program is based on a belief that the teacher needs, for
further development, both professional courses and nonprofessional courses in the three fields of
science, social science and humanities. The maximum credit for the summer session is 12 hours.
Courses are scheduled online, as well as evenings and weekends during the regular academic
year.
   A brochure describing the graduate program for teachers will be sent on request. Programs in
elementary, middle school and secondary education are offered. Also offered are programs with
specialization in special education, special reading, instructional mathematics K-8, teaching the
gifted, instructional technology, instructional technology/media and a program for professionals
in the human services area. Drury University offers the M.Ed. program both on campus and at the
Fort Leonard Wood/St. Robert location.



  Additional information about the graduate programs can be obtained by contacting the Gradu-
ate Programs Office at (417) 873-6948.

                       Grading System
                       The grading symbols used in the graduate programs are A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, S, U, I, and F. There
                       are no grades awarded below C except for the failing grade of F.
                          A grade of A indicates excellent academic performance. A grade of B indicates the quality and
                       standard of academic work expected of graduate students. A grade of C indicates barely accept-
                       able achievement and may be counted toward the graduate degree only when offset
                       by sufficient grade points on other courses. A grade of F indicates an unacceptable level
                       of performance.
                         A grade of S (Satisfactory) indicates the attainment of a B level or better. A grade of F or U indi-
                       cates an unacceptable level of performance.
                          The following grade point system is used to determine one hour’s credit in computing
                       academic standing: each hour of A counts as 4.0; A- counts as 3.7; B+ counts as 3.3, B counts as 3.0;
                       B- counts as 2.7, C+ counts as 2.3; C counts as 2.0; F counts as 0.
                          An I grade is given for incomplete work only if illness or other unavoidable causes prevent the
                       student from completing the course. The student is responsible for contacting the instructor
                       and determining what must be done to remove the I grade. Coursework must be completed and
                       the I grade replaced with a letter grade within six weeks after the beginning of the semester
                       immediately following the semester in which the I was received. The instructor granting the
                       incomplete, or the graduate program director in the instructor’s absence, is required to report to
                       the registrar a grade for the permanent record at the end of that period. An I not removed within
                       the time period allowed will automatically be changed to an F grade. A specified extension of
                       time for removal of the incomplete grade may be granted by the graduate program director. Until
                       the grade has been formally recorded, the course will not be considered as hours attempted and
                       thus will not be a part of the cumulative grade point average.
