Academic Subjects

Because the departmental and course offerings at Duke are so much broader than in high school, there's a lot to discover. Browsing the different majors, minors and certificate programs, is a great way to stumble upon classes you didn't know existed, and to learn about what courses different academic disciplines offer and require. There are over 50 majors! Be sure to look at introductory courses, or 100 or 200 level elective courses as these are a good way to explore departments and subjects. Use Advanced Search to look at classes by general academic area, like the natural sciences, arts and humanities, and social sciences. You might find some unexpected courses!
