Mission: Preparing for Every Future

The School of Humanities at Lindenwood University prepares students for every future by providing them with the experience they need to succeed in their careers and their lives.


High-impact teaching – Focusing on mentoring relationships through small class sizes and emphasis on advising. Internships, study abroad opportunities, and other forms of hands-on learning offer valuable professional and life experiences.

21st-Century skills – Teaching students to read carefully, think critically, and communicate clearly, skills that never go out of fashion – and cannot be replicated by robots! Courses enrich technological abilities with the lessons of human experience.

Life-long learning – Nurturing students’ curiosity about the world and enhancing their abilities to learn independently. Courses make students into the intellectually flexible problem solvers that employers want.

Human connections – Helping students develop empathy, embrace diversity, and recognize the common human experience across space, time, culture, and language
