About

History

Duke University in Durham, N.C., traces its origins to 1838, when Methodist and Quaker families in rural Randolph County employed Brantley York as a permanent teacher for their subscription school. Under his leadership, the infrequently-used Brown's Schoolhouse became Union Institute. 

Education

Duke embraces openness in the pursuit of knowledge and welcomes intellectually restless students who use their talents to put ideas to the test. We view education not only as a gateway to personal development, but also as a pathway for improving society.

Research

At Duke, research isn’t just for upperclassmen majoring in science, but a way of learning that begins with students’ first year on campus and continues throughout their college experience. More than half of our undergraduates complete faculty-mentored research projects, working with professors from every department across campus.
