  • London Calling

    As an English major and theatre fanatic, I knew London would be the perfect destination for me, but the Duke in London Drama program exceeded all of my expectations. I spent my days in magnificent theatres watching brilliant actors in truly spectacular productions, exploring and fully enjoying myself. Now,…

  • Where It All Began

    Dear Global Education Office,

    While I spent the majority of my six weeks abroad in London, my program did also take a short trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.  There, I spent one of my favorite days of the trip, wandering around the beautiful village…

  • A walk in the park

    Dear Global Education Office,

    I captured this photo on a walk in Green park with some friends.  You can see Buckingham Palace, and the Victoria monument in the background.  Having so much history surrounding you at all times is truly an astounding feeling.   While studying…

  • Exploring the Cotswolds

    Dear Global Education Office,

    I'm studying theatre in London, but one of my favorite experiences was when we got a chance to explore the countryside! For our long weekend, my friend and I were able to wander from village to village on a truly spontaneous adventure, befriending sheep…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    This program has been a life experience that I will NEVER forget! I’m a pre-med student, but I did theater in high school and I still absolutely love it, so I decided to apply to this program so I could focus completely on theater before I had…

  • Living London Live!

    Dear Global Education Office:

    The time that I have had this summer has been amazing. Seeing 28 different productions composed of operas, musicals, and drama theatre was nothing short of incredible. Basically being plopped in West Central London with a group of other students and being allowed to…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Interestingly, I'm a Biology Major and I plan to study medicine after Duke, and before this summer, I had never really been exposed much to the world of theater. Needless to say, my experience was amazing. Since being back on campus, I now frequently attend plays and…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    As a lover of the arts, I applied to the Duke in London Drama theater program with the supposition that my days would consist of European adventures, while my nights would be filled with "Broadway-style" shenanigans. My time reflected this postulation, but I did not consider strongly…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Duke in London took us from Sophocles to Laura Wade, through the Royal Opera House, out into the Globe Theatre, and eventually into the fish-n-chip shop outside the Roundhouse. Any artist will tell you that the best way to learn is to immerse oneself in as many…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    The 2012 Duke in London-Drama program attended 28 productions including operas, modern dance shows, plays, monologue collections, musicals, and verbatim theatre. Our class paid special attention to Shakespeare, however, as a prolific playwright, particularly in Britain. We saw Richard III at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and as "groundlings"…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Going to London was the single greatest experience of my life. I am the first one in my family to ever travel abroad, and I am so glad I did it. In 42 days, I saw an astounding 31 shows! After my last acting scene assignment, English…

    Shakespeare's Globe

    The Duke in London program is built around one philosophical principle: you learn more from going out into the world than sitting in a classroom. It is one of the best summer programs that Duke offers. Full stop. And I say that completely voluntarily. Over…
