Faculty from the partner universities offer courses at VIU, all taught in English. Students will have the opportunity to take courses from all of these international scholars, and will enjoy a truly international academic experience by mixing with their European peers. Although no previous knowledge of Italian is required, it is strongly recommended that students begin study of the language before arriving in Venice. Italian language will be a required course for students on the Duke in Venice program.
Students will have access to the libraries of the two Venetian institutions. Computer labs are available at VIU.
All participants are subject to Duke University's scholarship and conduct policies.
