About

GraduationThe Duke ideal for graduate education is a small number of superior students working closely with esteemed scholars. Graduate study at Duke is defined by maximum personal attention; smaller, more involving classes; flexible programs of study designed to meet students’ individual needs and interests; and richer, cross-disciplinary possibilities for scholarship.

The Graduate School oversees 80-plus Ph.D. and master's programs at Duke. The school offers numerous resources that enhance the graduate student experience, advocates for students' needs, provides a larger community of support for students outside their departments and programs, and sets policies that ensure students receive a high-quality educational experience.

"I’ll paraphrase the advice [from my advisor]: 'You need to make this training experience your own. You need to think about what you want to get out of this. And there are resources in place. There are people who will help, but rarely will you get referred to those places. You need to figure out exactly what you want. You need to decide what resources you need. And then you need to figure out how to get the support and resources you need. It has to be active and you have to do it for yourself.'"
