Our Program

If you're a college student looking to get ahead academically — Let your future run through Duke University Summer Session!

Each year, about 1,500 students participate in Summer Session for a variety of reasons. Some enroll in courses to help reach their second major, or minor, or certificate. Some see it as a great opportunity to focus on more difficult courses or foreign language classes. Others want to get some courses out of the way so they can study abroad later. And still others use Summer Session to take courses they have difficulty getting in to during the regular academic year.  

But all agree, the casual and more relaxed environment of the summer classes, coupled with the individual attention they receive, make Duke University Summer Session special.

But college students aren't the only ones who can participate. High School students, you too can let your future run through Duke University Summer Session!

Whether you are seeking academic credit, preparing for college, looking for personal enrichment, or simply wanting a fun way to spend the summer, we have the program for you. Available for students in grades 9 through 12, our programs give you a taste of college life while making new friends. Join us on Duke campus and get a leg-up on your future.
