Study Away

Duke encourages all students to take advantage of opportunities for global education. You can study many places, but there are several programs designed specifically for students in the arts. To review all program options, see the Duke Global Education website.

Global Education Program Semester Offered Description
Duke in London - Drama Summer The Duke University Department of Theater Studies, the Duke English Department, and the Duke Global Education Office for Undergraduates offer a two-course, six-week program at University College London. Students in the program see and study over twenty productions over the six-week term. In addition to classes offering background on and discussion of the plays seen, students come to understand the writing, directing, and acting process through their classes with the London faculty and through participation in scene work. Classes are taught by Duke Professors Sarah Beckwith and Jeff Storer. Students meet with leading British theater professionals.
Duke in New York Arts & Media Fall The fall Arts & Media program is a complete, exciting semester for students who have some background in – or want to learn more about – art, music, theater, fashion, and media, including magazine and book publishing, advertising, film, and television. The program offers students the opportunity to earn four Duke credits: three credits for courses taught by Duke faculty and one credit for an internship in an arts and/or media area of interest.
Duke in New York Summer Internships in the City Summer The Duke in New York – Summer Internships in the City program is an exciting way for students to gain experience in the fields of arts and media, learn about the remarkable city of New York both in the classroom and on the street, and take advantage of the city’s cultural offerings. It makes for a well-rounded summer that is an unforgettable complement to the Duke experience. Students take a Summer Session I seminar cross-listed in English, Theater Studies, and Visual Studies, and work at an arts and/or media internship of their choosing throughout Summer Session I and II. The program features faculty-led tours of historical neighborhoods as well as trips to Broadway and Off-Broadway plays, museums, music festivals, and other NYC events.
