DukeImmerse2013FallDukeImmerse
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 the first-year Focus program at Duke, except students take all courses together, not just a subset.  DukeImmerse is an academic counterpart to the co-curricular DukeEngage program. Programs may provide global off-campus experiences to enhance the curriculum and may target sophomores or older students, depending on the need for prerequisites.

The DukeImmerse program supported by the DHRC@FHI is the Rights & Identities in the Americas program.
