Projected Course Offerings for the Summer of 2018

The Office of Summer Session provides this list of summer 2018 projected Trinity College and Pratt School of Engineering course offerings to assist you in academic planning. Summer is an excellent time to get ahead or catch up, take a year of chemistry or physics or a language, take one or more courses that will allow you to study abroad or at the Duke Marine Lab, or make progress towards completing your major, minor, or certificate program.

There are four course lists below: Term 1, 4-week; Term 1, 6-week; Term 2, 4-week; and Term 2, 6-week. Individual instructors will determine whether a final exam or a final project/presentation will be given during the finals period. The maximum course load for the 4-week terms is 1.5 course credits, while the maximum course load for the 6-week terms is 2.5 course credits.

The official schedule of courses will appear on DukeHub on February 12 and registration for summer opens on February 19. Watch for regularly updated projected course offerings on this web site between now and the end of January. Additional cross-listings for some of the Special Topics classes may be forthcoming. In addition to regular course offerings, many departments will offer independent study and special projects courses.

Start planning your summer now. Feel free to contact us at 684-5375, or summer@duke.edu, if you have questions. Course synopses will begin appearing in DukeHub as soon as the schedule of courses goes ‘live’ on DukeHub in February.

(***Contact the Marine Lab and the Global Education Office for information regarding summer coursework sponsored by those academic offices.)
