Complete Course Listings

(Last Update: October 21, 2019)

Projected Course Offerings for the Summer of 2020

The Office of Summer Session provides this list of summer 2020 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; focus upon biology, biochemistry, chemistry, math, physics, or Spanish; take one or more courses that will allow you to study abroad or at the Duke Marine Lab in the future; 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 10 and registration for summer opens on February 17. 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 on 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.)
