Welcome to Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke

Duke’s reputation has been enhanced by its accomplishments in interdisciplinary studies; the interdisciplinary character of our institution attracts exceptional faculty and students, adds a critical dimension to teaching, promotes study at the frontiers of research, and aids Duke in its mission to provide knowledge in the service of society. Success in interdisciplinary studies requires collaboration across disciplines, schools, and interdisciplinary institutes; such collaborations have given rise to innovative initiatives in undergraduate and graduate education, and in faculty research and recruitment. University-wide Institutes and Centers and Initiatives – including Bass Connections, a university-wide educational initiative – are incubating some of Duke’s most exciting collaborative research and teaching initiatives, and are helping to catalyze Duke’s overarching goal of placing knowledge in service to society.
