Through one-on-one advising, we work with you to incorporate global and civic opportunities into your academic plan. We guide you as you explore the options before you, reflect on the experiences behind you and integrate all your classes, activities and experiences into your Duke education. 

Advisors' Advice

Advisors’ Advice: Variety is the spice of life!

On a college campus, learning takes many different forms and can happen both in and out of the classroom. Make sure you have variety in your four years. Take a combination of seminars and lectures, try out service-learning and research, go to special events on campus and in Durham. Visit our Explore by: Ways to Learn page for more ideas.

Advisors' Advice: Meet with the Humanities DAE

In addition to advising from our directors of academic engagement for global and civic opportunities, the Academic Advising Center offers you the opportunity to work with our new DAE for the arts and humanities, Dr. Jules Odendahl-James. No matter what your major or planned career path, Dr. Odendahl-James can advise you on ways to integrate meaningful humanities experiences—including research opportunities—into your academic life at Duke. Request an appointment by emailing Dr. Odendahl-James or by calling the AAC at (919) 684-6217.

Advisors' Advice: Take a House Course

House Courses are half-credit, satisfactory/unsatisfactory courses open to all undergraduates and led by a faculty member or current Duke undergraduates under faculty supervision. Topics cover a wide variety of subjects and change every semester. Check out this semester's list of house courses.
