What does the Arts & Humanities DAE do?

Arts & Humanities icon

The humanities disciplines use historical, philosophical, and artistic approaches to study the human condition. Humanistic knowledge plays a crucial part in the education of the individual and the betterment of society. Duke nests the Arts within the Humanities and at Duke you will find an array of practitioners, historians, theorists, and interdisciplinary scholars to provide you with a holistic view on creative, visual, and performing arts field and industries.

Arts/Humanities advising is available to all undergraduates, whether in Trinity College or Pratt School of Engineering, regardless of major or class year. Advising conversations with Dr. OJ will position you to dive deeper into your exploration of an arts or humanities discipline or pinpoint an area of humanities interest to accentuate your study of a different major or prehealth track.
