The Duke University Graduate School offers master’s and doctoral degrees in more than 70 departments and programs of study, as well as certificate programs and dual- and joint-degree programs. Our graduate students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty across Duke’s nine other schools and to conduct research in connection with numerous campus research institutes and centers.
The Graduate School also offers nontraditional programs to meet the needs of our students, including dual and joint degrees, as well as graduate programs at Duke Kunshan University in China.
We conduct external reviews on our programs approximately every six years to evaluate the quality of the research and teaching and to recommend ways to enhance the programs’ effectiveness.
