  • 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…

    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…

    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:

    When people ask how my semester in London was, I can only say that it was an eye-opening experience that pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me things I could never have learned had I stayed in the United States. Many sides of my…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Seeing Big Ben, the London Eye, and Trafalgar Square are experiences that people never forget. However, living on a college campus in England -- hearing my flatmates' thoughts on everything from college tuition to McDonald's to politics, debating the difference between jell-o and jelly, exploring East London…

    Queen Mary, University London, a direct enrollment option, provided a great opportunity to learn about British culture. Because the Duke relationship with Queen Mary is so well-established, I received direct transfer credit for the biology and economics courses I took. I shared a flat with amazing British…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    After swooning over the Royal Wedding all of last semester, I was excited to embark upon my exploration in London. The rich heritage and cultural pulled me in and I can honestly say that my six weeks in London was nothing shy of amazing.

  • 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…

    The Time of My Life!

    Duke in London - Drama was an unforgettable experience. The opportunity to live and learn in one of the greatest cities in the world was everything one might expect, and much more. We learned theater through immersion, as if it were a…

    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…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Here we are traveling again, this time on a weekend trip to a little pueblo in the countryside outside of Madrid. It's breathtakingly beautiful here, from the palace whose courtyard we're standing in, to the mountain vista behind us. This is one of the things I loved…

    The Duke in Glasgow program begins with a week-long trip to London, with visits to Parliament and opportunities to experience some of the cultural riches of the city.
