Students at Duke Kunshan University will have opportunities for study abroad experiences that are integrated with the undergraduate curriculum and major offerings. Working closely with Duke University and with Duke's Global Education Office (GEO), the Study Abroad Office will provide students with a range of opportunities to join programs both in China, in the United States, and elsewhere abroad.
Duke Kunshan University students will be able and encouraged to study for one semester and one summer term at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, during their junior year. At Duke, they will be able to take a wide variety of courses in both major and elective subjects, while also participating in student activities, organizations, and clubs. The Duke study abroad experience will also involve an immersive learning experience in American culture, society, and values.
While the study abroad experience at Duke University will likely prove attractive to the great majority of our students, we also expect that not all students will wish to spend an entire six months on the Duke campus, but will opt for other study abroad opportunities instead. The Study Abroad Office will help students explore these opportunities and over time, the Study Abroad Office will develop different study abroad programs and options for Duke Kunshan University students.
