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.
