Duke University : Global Education for Undergraduates


Duke-In Programs

Duke University administers and supervises the Duke-In Programs, either fully or in partnerships with other institutions, and Duke faculty are directly involved. Students earn regular Duke credits and grades in most cases (transfer credits in some) that count towards curricular requirements. 

International Duke-In Programs

Domestic Duke-In Programs


Duke-Approved Programs

Programs on the Duke-Approved Programs List are sponsored by other American/foreign universities and providers, and are approved by the Duke Global Education Committee. Students earn transfer credit only, which may fulfill requirements for majors, minors, certifications, Areas of Knowledge, and the FL Mode of Inquiry with special approval.
Students who register to study on programs administered by institutions other than Duke University will pay the tuition and fees of the administering university, in addition to a study abroad fee payable to Duke to maintain the student's enrollment at Duke. 

Petition Programs

If you do not find a Duke-In or Duke-Approved program suitable to your academic interests, you may petition the Global Education Committee for provisional approval of a program of your choice. More about the petition process >
