is a semester-long program in which all courses are small seminars, interdisciplinary and build on a single theme. Each DukeImmerse program comprises:a cluster of courses in which everyone is enrolled; curriculum based on issues related to the professors’ research; high faculty and student interaction; classroom learning connected with the real world and small enrollments (about a dozen students each). DukeImmerse resembles first-year Focus program at Duke, except students take all courses together, not just a subset.  DukeImmerse is anacademic counterpart to the co-curricular DukeEngage program. Programs may provide off-campus experiences to enhance the curriculum and may target sophomores or older students, depending on the need for prerequisites.

The two DukeImmerse programs supported by the DHRC@FHI are the fall Rights & Identities in the Americas program and the spring Freedom Struggles in the 20th century program.
