Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinarity suffuses Duke’s schools and departments, with the university-wide institutes, initiatives and centers serving as crucial incubators of innovations in research, teaching and community engagement.

The Office of the Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies provides central leadership for these units and runs the Bass Connections program, which brings together faculty, graduate students and undergraduates to tackle complex societal challenges in interdisciplinary research teams.
