Academic HomecomingIn Your Major

Joining a major marks your transition from advising in the Academic Advising Center to advising within your major during your last two years at Duke. With this move to a new academic home come new considerations for how to get the most out of your Duke experience.

Going global

Even after your primary academic advising has moved from the Academic Advising Center to your major, our directors of academic engagement for global and civic opportunities are here to advise you on how to incorporate global and civic engagement opportunities into your academic plan. They can help you find ways to engage with your major or other coursework in outside-the-classroom experiences in Durham or across the globe. They can also provide advice on adding breadth to your knowledge through exploring the interdisciplinary themes of Bass Connections.

While away-from-Duke experiences are available to students in all four years, the junior year is a particularly popular time to study abroad. Talk to a DAE to plan your semester or summer abroad, to establish a plan for exploring global issues and cultures on campus or to find ways to get engaged in the Durham community.
