About Duke UniversityLocated in historic Durham, North Carolina, and the rapidly growing Research Triangle area is one of the nation's leading institutions of higher education -- Duke University.
Duke is known for the quality of its faculty and its academic and research programs. However, the university's size -- about 6,000 undergraduates and 4,300 graduate and professional students -- enables it to offer the atmosphere of a small college as well as the educational resources of a major research university.
Duke awards undergraduate and graduate degrees in arts and sciences and in engineering, as well as graduate or professional degrees in law, divinity, medicine, nursing, environmental studies, and business. A recognized leader in higher education, Duke is also widely known for its medical center, which comprises clinical, training and research programs.
While proud of its North Carolina roots, Duke draws students from all 50 states and more than 70 foreign countries.
