They have fundamentally changed the world. and in its practical everyday experience. Undergraduate education is a formative period for engaging in critical analysis of ethical questions arising in human life. and to sharpen their understanding of the ethical and political implications of public and personal decision-making. Students must take two courses providing exposures in each of these three modes. comparative. students must satisfactorily complete two courses in each area. The first three of the six required Modes of Inquiry address important cross-cutting intellectual themes that represent enduring focal points of inquiry and involve application of knowledge to which many disciplines speak.

Each student's internship must be sponsored by a departmental/program faculty member and approved by the director of undergraduate studies. The major must be planned early in the undergraduate career. The plan should describe the proposed major program. Such internships typically draw upon work experience to investigate a research problem from one or more intellectual/disciplinary perspectives.

Health, Physical Education, and Recreation
Besides offering a variety of classes (see the chapter ''Courses of Instruction''), the Department of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation also sponsors numerous programs for all students in intramurals, sports clubs, and recreation. The Intramural Sports Program provides an opportunity for every student to participate in organized recreation competition in over 40 activities. The program is comprised of four major areas: men's intramurals, women's intramurals, co-ed intramurals, and recreation programs. It is open to all graduate and undergraduate students of Duke University. Participation, not skill, is a major factor that is emphasized in the program. More than 35 sports clubs have been chartered by Duke students for those with similar interests to participate in competition and recreational activities. Clubs vary from those which compete with clubs of other universities, such as soccer, rugby, and ice hockey, to those of a more recreational nature such as cycling, and sailing, and others which yearly present several performances. The university's many recreational facilities, available to all students, include the championship Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, tennis courts (some lighted) on both campuses, indoor swimming pools on East and West campuses and an outdoor pool on Central campus, three gymnasiums including the Brenda and Keith Brodie Recreation Center on East Campus and the Wilson Recreation Center on West Campus, several weight training rooms, squash and racquetball courts, outdoor handball and basketball courts, an all-weather track, numerous playing fields, jogging trails, and informal recreational areas. Tournaments in recreational sports are often organized and conducted by students. Students may reserve facilities and equipment at designated times.

Intercollegiate Athletics
The Athletic Department fosters intercollegiate athletics by striving for excellence and by providing the best possible framework within which highly accomplished student athletes can compete. The department has a dual responsibility to provide a high-quality athletic program and environment so that all students have the opportunity to compete to the fullest extent of their abilities. Duke is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association(NCAA) and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The ACC consists of Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest. The intercollegiate program for men includes football, soccer, basketball, cross country, swimming, fencing, wrestling, indoor and outdoor track, baseball, golf, tennis, and lacrosse. The women's athletic program provides intercollegiate competition in basketball, fencing, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, volleyball, rowing, indoor and outdoor track, and cross country. Freshmen may participate on all varsity teams. The director of athletics and associate director of athletics provide departmental leadership and coordinate all athletic policies with the University Athletic Council. The council consists of representatives from the undergraduate student body, the faculty, the administrative staff, the trustees, and the alumni. The council meets with the director of athletics periodically during the school year. The chairman of the council is the official university representative at national and conference athletic meetings.

Judicial System and Regulations
Duke University has high expectations for students’ scholarship and conduct. Each student is subject to the rules and regulations of the university currently in effect, or which are put into effect from time to time by the appropriate authorities of the university. At the same time, the individual is responsible for decisions and choices within the framework of the regulations of the community, as Duke does not assume in loco parentis relationships.

100 Campus Life and Activities

Students, in accepting admission, indicate their willingness to subscribe to and be governed by these rules and regulations. They acknowledge the right of the university to take disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion, for failure to abide by the regulations or for other conduct adjudged unsatisfactory or detrimental to the university community. Responsibility for prescribing and enforcing rules and regulations governing student conduct rests ultimately with the Board of Trustees of Duke University and, by delegation, with administrative officers of the university. In the undergraduate schools, and in the university as a whole, many of these rules have been established over the years by cooperative action between students, faculty, and administrative officers. Representative student organizations, such as student governments and judicial boards, and more recently, community-wide bodies of students, faculty, and administrators, have initiated proposals for policies and rules necessary to assure satisfactory standards in academic and nonacademic conduct. These proposals have been accepted by university officers and have become a substantial, if not all-inclusive, body of rules governing student life at Duke. For current regulations, refer to the The Duke Community Standard in Practice: A Guide for Undergraduates. Students in Trinity College of Arts and Sciences and in the Pratt School of Engineering constitute an undergraduate community whose members are subject to the rules and regulations of the Undergraduate Community. Violations of any published policy by individuals and residential or nonresidential cohesive units may be adjudicated under the procedures set forth in the The Duke Community Standard in Practice: A Guide for Undergraduates.

Student Obligations and Requirements
Students are expected to meet academic requirements and financial obligations, as specified elsewhere in this bulletin, in order to remain in good standing. Certain nonacademic rules and regulations must be observed also, including accepting responsibility for behavior that is disruptive or threatening to the safety of self or others. Failure to meet these requirements may result in dismissal by the appropriate officer of the university.

Student Obligations and Requirements 101

Admission

Principles of Selection
James B. Duke, in his Indenture of Trust, requested that ''great care and discrimination be exercised in admitting as students only those whose previous record shows a character, determination, and application evincing a wholesome and real ambition for life.'' Therefore, in considering prospective students, Duke University looks beyond the basic characteristics of academic competence possessed by the majority of applicants. It seeks, regardless of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, gender, handicap, sexual orientation or preference, or age, not only evidence of intellectual promise and maturity of judgment, but also a sense of life beyond the classroom. Often, this is expressed in the form of special talents and accomplishments; it is seen consistently in a student's determination to make creative use of the opportunities and challenges posed by Duke University.

Requirements for Application
As there are occasionally changes in admission policies or procedures after the printing deadline for the Bulletin of Duke University: Undergraduate Instruction, candidates are urged to consult the Duke University Viewbook: Information for Prospective Students for specific admissions information, dates, and policies. DEGREE STATUS Although there are no inflexible requirements as to subject matter, students are urged to choose a broad and challenging high school program. Candidates for admission should present a minimum of four years of English and at least three of mathematics, natural sciences, a foreign language, and social studies. Applicants to the Pratt School of Engineering are advised to take four years of mathematics and four years of science, including physics and chemistry. Calculus is a prerequisite for admission to the Pratt School of Engineering. All candidates for first-year standing must complete either the SAT Reasoning Test or theACT. Those students who choose to take the three-part SAT should also complete two SAT Subject Tests. Applicants to the Pratt School of Engineering should take one SAT Subject Test in mathematics (level 1 or 2). Students wishing to continue study or gain course exemption in a foreign language should complete an SAT Subject Test or Advanced Placement exam in that language. Even though the foreign language SAT Subject Test is not required for admission, we strongly recommend that students take the test before leaving high school. Students should refer to the Duke University Web site, at http://www.duke.edu, and follow the appropriate undergraduate admissions links for the most recent information on SAT Subject Test requirements for incoming students. The SAT Reasoning and Subject Tests should be taken by October of the senior year for Early Decision applicants and by January of the senior year for Regular Decision applicants. Students choosing to take the ACT will not be required to submit SAT Reasoning or Subject Test scores; however, the ACT will be used for admission only, not for placement or exemption. The ACT should be taken by

Principles of Selection 103

October of the senior year for Early Decision applicants and by December of the senior year for Regular Decision applicants. NONDEGREE STATUS Summer Session. Persons who are or were at the time of leaving their home institutions in good standing in accredited colleges or universities may be admitted for summer study only by the director of the Summer Session. Continuing Education. Admission as a continuing education student at Duke is limited to adults who live in the Triangle area; Duke graduates; persons who will be moving into the area and plan to reside here for a substantial period of time, for family and work reasons; and local high school seniors. These students are given academic counseling by the Office of Continuing Studies; they are subject to most of the regulations set forth for degree candidates.

Application Procedures
DEGREE STATUS The Duke University Viewbook: Information for Prospective Students and an application may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Duke University, Box 90586, Durham, North Carolina 27708-0586. A nonrefundable processing fee that is determined annually must accompany the first part of the application. Students may apply using the Common Application plus two Duke-specific supplementary forms: the Student Supplement (Form A) and the School Report Supplement (Form B). The Common Application is available online and in secondary school guidance offices. The required Student Supplement to the Common Application is available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or through the admissions Web site. Students are encouraged to apply online by following the appropriate links on the admissions Web site. A personal interview is not required for admission, but it provides an opportunity to learn more about an applicant’s strengths and goals. For most applicants, Duke offers interviews with local alumni when the Student Supplement to the Common Application has been filed by the deadline (October 20 for Early Decision applicants and December 10 for Regular Decision applicants). Regular Decision. Candidates who wish to enter Duke as first-year students must submit a completed application no later than January 2 of their senior year in secondary school. Decisions are mailed from the university in early April, and accepted candidates are expected to reserve a place in the class by May 1. Early Decision. Students for whom Duke is a clear first choice may apply for Early Decision. Candidates who apply for Early Decision are required to sign a statement confirming their commitment to enroll at Duke if they are admitted in the Early Decision process and to withdraw applications from other colleges and universities as soon as they learn of their admission to Duke. Students may apply to only one school under a binding Early Decision plan. Duke reserves the right to withdraw the applications of students accepted to other schools under binding Early Decision plans. Secondary school counselors and parents are also asked to sign the Early Decision agreement. Students who are denied admission under the Early Decision program may not reapply for admission under the Regular Decision program. Students applying for Early Decision should submit a completed application by November 1. The SAT Reasoning Subject Tests or the ACT examinations should be taken no later than October of the senior year. Early Decision applicants who have not completed their standardized tests may be deferred to Regular Decision. Applicants are notified of their status—admit, defer, or deny—by mid-December. Admitted students are expected to respond by January 2. The credentials of candidates who are deferred are considered along with candidates for Regular Decision. Deferred students are no longer bound by the Early

104 Admission

Decision agreement and are free to accept offers of admission from other colleges and universities. This plan is designed to give well-qualified students who know Duke is their first choice a means of indicating that commitment to the university and of receiving a decision early enough to eliminate the necessity of applying to several colleges. Midyear Admission. A midyear (January) admission program has not been offered to first-year students for a number of years and there are no current plans to reinstate one. When offered, midyear admission has allowed students to begin their college work a semester early or to postpone matriculation for a semester. Transfer Admission. Transfer admission from other accredited institutions may be arranged for a limited number of students each semester. Because the transcript of at least one full year of academic work is preferred by the Admissions Committee, and because transfer students are required to spend their last two years at Duke, most candidates apply to Duke during their first or second year of college. All Duke students, except those majoring in engineering, must meet the requirements for the Trinity College curriculum, so students applying to transfer to Trinity College should plan to spend three years at Duke in order to meet the requirements for the Trinity College curriculum and the major. Candidates must submit completed application forms, official transcripts of all work completed at other accredited colleges, high school records, scores on the SAT or ACT, and employment records if there has been an extended period of employment since graduation from secondary school. See the section on transfer credit on page 48. September (fall semester) transfer students submit a completed application by March 15, learn of their decisions in mid-May, and respond to the university by June 1. January (if offered) transfer students submit a completed application by October 15, learn of their decisions by November 15, and reply to the university by December 1. January transfer is not available to students in their first year of college. NONDEGREE STATUS Summer Session. Registration forms and schedules of courses may be obtained by writing or calling the Office of the Summer Session, Box 90059, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina 27708-0059, (919) 684-2621. No application fee is required. Continuing Education. Applications may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and must be returned to that office, accompanied by the application fee, by August 1 for the fall semester and by December 1 for the spring semester. A certain grade point average over four courses must be attained before a nondegree student may apply for degree candidacy. More detailed information on nondegree course work through continuing education is available from the Office of Continuing Studies, Box 90700, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina 27708-0700. READMISSION OF FORMER STUDENTS A student who desires to return, following withdrawal from college, should apply directly to the appropriate college or school. (See the section on readmission procedures on page 60.)

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees*
No college or university can honestly state that an education at the college level is inexpensive. Fees paid by students cover less than half the cost of their instruction and the operation of the university. Income from endowment and contributions from alumni and other concerned individuals meet the balance and assure each student the opportunity to pursue an education of unusually high quality. Students are urged to give their attention first to the selection of institutions which meet their intellectual and personal needs, and then to the devising of a sound plan for meeting the cost of their education. This process will require an in-depth knowledge of both the university's financial aid program and the resources of the student's family. Information describing in detail the various forms of financial aid may be obtained from the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid web site at: http://dukefinancialaid.duke.edu. Estimated Expenses. The figures in this section are projections and are subject to change. Certain basic expenditures, such as tuition, room, and board, are considered in preparing a student's budget. These necessary expenditures, with a reasonable amount allotted for miscellaneous items, are shown below:
Academic Year, 2008-2009 Two Summer Terms, 2008

(two semesters) Tuition Trinity College Engineering Residential Fee Single Room Double Room Triple Room Food (projections include a meal plan service fee) 100% board plan 75% board plan Books and Supplies Student Health Fee Student Activity Student Services Fee Recreation Fee Residential Program Fee

$1,659 $1,049 $553 $175 $341

This fee is optional.

It should be realized that additional expenses will be incurred which will depend to a large extent upon the tastes and habits of the individual. The average undergraduate student, however, can plan on a budget of approximately $50,633. The budget estimate for the summer (two terms, one semester equivalent) is $13,659. These budgets represent most

Tuition and Fees 107

student living expenses except for cable, telephone, parking, travel costs, loan fees, and major clothing purchases. Fees and Deposits for Fall and Spring. On notification of acceptance, students (including transfer students) are required to pay a nonrefundable registration fee of $100 which includes a one-time transcript processing fee, and to make an advance deposit of $200. The deposit will not be refunded to accepted applicants who fail to matriculate. Late Registration. Continuing students who fail to register during the registration period must pay a fee of $50 to the bursar. Part-Time Students. In the regular academic year, students who with permission register for not more than two courses in a semester will be classified as part-time students. Part-time students will be charged at the following rates: one course, $4,508; half course, $2,254; quarter course, $1,127. Registration for more than two courses requires payment of full tuition. Graduate students registered for undergraduate courses will be assessed three units for non-laboratory courses and four units for laboratory courses. Men and women in nondegree programs who are being considered for admission to degree programs, as designated by the Office of Continuing Education, pay fees by the course whether the course load is one, two, or three courses. Auditing one or more courses without charge is allowed for students paying full fees, provided that the consent of the instructor is obtained. Students who are enrolled for one or two courses may audit other courses by payment of $439 for each course audited. With the consent of the appropriate instructor and the director of Continuing Education, graduates of Duke may audit undergraduate courses for the above payment per course. Fall and Spring Student Bills. The Bursar’s Office issues bills to registered students for tuition, fees, and other charges approximately four to six weeks prior to the beginning of classes each semester. The amount due on the bill statement is payable by the due date as indicated on the bill. Inquiries can be made at the Bursar’s Office by e-mail at bursar@duke.edu, by facsimile at (919) 684-3091, or by telephone at (919) 684-3531. Current account information is available on the ACES Web site. Office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. As part of the admission agreement to Duke University, a student is required to pay all bills as presented. If full payment is not received, a late payment charge will be assessed on the subsequent bill, and certain restrictions, as stated below, will be applied. Failure to receive a bill does not warrant exemption from the payment of tuition and fees, nor from the penalties and restrictions. Bills are mailed to the student’s permanent home address as maintained by the student on the ACES Web site. Non-registered students will be required to make payment for the current term’s tuition and fees, as well as any past due balance, at the time of registration. Payment can be made by e-check at www.bursar.duke.edu. Restrictions for Outstanding Account Balances. An individual will be in default if the amount due, as listed on the bill, is not paid in full by the required due date. In addition to the assessment of late payment charges, a student in default will not be allowed to register for future semesters, to receive a transcript of academic records, to have academic credits certified, or to receive a diploma at graduation. In addition, an individual in default may be subject to withdrawal from school and have the account referred to a collection agency and credit bureau. Duke Student Insurance. Undergraduates enrolled in programs that require payment of the student health fee must also maintain adequate medical insurance (in addition to paying the mandatory student health fee). Adequate medical insurance is defined as insurance that meets or exceeds the level of coverage provided by the Duke Student Medical Insurance Plan ("the Duke Plan"). International students holding an F-1 or J-1 visa are required to participate in the student medical insurance plan. These students will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the plan; no action is required on the part of the student.

108 Financial Information

Information on how to enroll or waive coverage under the Duke plan, as well as information regarding plan benefits will be available at www.bursar.duke.edu. Fees for Study Abroad. Students who register to study abroad on programs administered by institutions other than Duke University will pay the tuition and fees of the administering institution. There will be a fee of $2,468 per semester, payable to Duke University, to maintain a student's enrollment at Duke. Fees for Courses.

All first-time students who withdraw within 60 percent of the enrollment period will have their charges and financial aid adjusted according to the federal regulations. Additional information regarding this procedure may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid.

The course requirements for the major provide an intellectual vision that includes both study of language and culture practice and a critical theoretical framework for analyzing cultural experience. of which two must be at or above the 100-level. Hindi. The major in Asian and African Languages and Literature also requires students to analyze critically the issue of indigenous cultural identities. The major requires a minimum of ten courses (at least eight of which must be at the 100 level or above). Within the area of concentration. They include: (1) a minimum of three language courses. nation. and sexuality. Departmental Graduation with Distinction. Majors will be assigned one faculty advisor in their area of concentration. This view draws on theoretical inquiries into indigenous cultural identities associated with such conceptual categories as gender. (2) a minimum of three courses at or above the 100-level on the literature or culture of the area of concentration. aesthetics. Hebrew. Therefore. Students should discuss this option as early as possible with their major advisor. An integral part of the student's experience will be study abroad.

continually receiving feedback from their peers and from professors and graduate students. Hence. Students choosing this path enroll in a Research Independent Study (Economics 193) in the fall of their senior year. 258 Courses and Academic Programs . The department determined that the best setting in which to foster the research process is a two-semester workshop. in turn. In the spring of their senior year. Davies Fellowships are available to sponsor some of these juniors (and their mentors) to enable them to do research full time under the supervision of their advisor. This concept is based on the idea that in a workshop setting. These research workshops begin in a student's junior year for two reasons: firstly. they will have the tools with which to complete proper empirical analysis. Students may also pursue Graduation with Distinction by enlisting the approval of a specific faculty member (through submission of an approval form to the Director of Undergraduate Studies) indicating that the faculty member is willing to work with the student in his/her senior year in an independent study format to produce an honors thesis. if students then choose to undertake a research project. develop and later present their own research on a regular biweekly basis. will be determined by the instructor and confirmed by an outside reader. students may enroll in either Honors Research Independent Study (Economics 204) or Honors Seminar II (Economics 199S) with the signature of their faculty mentor and the approval of the 199S instructor (which is gained by submission of a satisfactory thesis proposal). and Duke economics professors present their own research to the students). Further. Students who do not enter one of the Honors Junior Research Workshops or have not developed a topic of interest with an individual faculty mentor may enroll in Honors Seminar I (Economics 198S) in the fall semester of their senior year and Honors Seminar II (Economics 199S) in the spring semester of their senior year. and secondly. Path 1 is a new path designed to create more opportunities for students to experience research in Economics. to allow students to continue their research over the summer of their junior year since they will already have completed a prospectus as part of the Honors Junior Research Workshop. to initiate students into a culture of research earlier in their college careers so as to have a greater impact. This enables students to read and understand advanced empirical papers in their area of interest. Note: Should a problem arise that prevents a student from completing this sequence. In such a case. under the instruction of the mentoring faculty member. It is because of this research initiative that the major has been restructured so as to provide the proper educational background and training for students to be able to undertake novel research. and then. Duke economics graduate students. students meet with their professor(s) and each other to observe advanced research (professors from outside the university. the requirements for the new chosen path would need to be satisfied in order to receive honors. resembling graduate workshops. the department now requires that all economics majors take econometrics before taking field courses in sub-disciplines. 3. they can switch to path 2 or 3.2.
