Each Immerse cohort is fewer than 18 students making for ideal seminar discussions and mentoring relationships.
Immerse programs are based in Durham on Duke’s campus and include travel to U.S. and international sites for experiential learning opportunities.
Duke faculty design a set of four interrelated seminar courses for each Immerse semester, focused on a central theme.
Immerse programs focus on a global challenge facing the world. Themes include ‘Imagining the Future of Food’, ‘Oceans, Human and Environmental Health’, and ‘Rights and Identities in the Americas’.
Duke Immerse offers a fundamentally different learning environment, bringing faculty and students together to explore a significant global challenge, in the field and in the classroom, through a multidisciplinary lens.
