The Classroom and Beyond: Duke's Innovative Academic Programs

Duke's innovative academic programs seek to expand upon the university's time-tested mission of teaching so that our students are provided with opportunities to transform knowledge into tangible initiatives that offer practical solutions to the global challenges of our time.  Rather than just a mere pathway for fulfilling degree requirements, Duke's innovative academic programs allow students to explore new ideas, themselves, and the world.   Through the innovative academic programs listed below, Duke's students are not only encouraged to think about future career opportunities, but they are also given the tools necessary for a lifetime of learning and global citizenship.

These innovative academic programs fall into five classifications: Leadership, Global Opportunities; Graduate and Professional Student Options; Non-Traditional Pedagogies; and Interdisciplinary Initiatives.
