|Duke in Berlin||Duke in Madrid – Intermediate|
|Duke in France/EDUCO||Duke in St. Petersburg|
|Duke in Glasgow||Duke in Venice|
|Duke in Madrid||ICCS – Rome|
Duke also offers 17 summer programs as a part of the Duke-In Programming:

Units/Resources at Duke Dedicated to Europe
The Observatory on Europe is an initiative of the Duke University Center for International & Global Studies dedicated to supporting interdisciplinary research, study, and discussion about Europe at Duke. The Observatory acts as a catalyst for scholarship on Europe for faculty and students by organizing and supporting workshops, conferences, panels, publications and exhibitions on contemporary as well as historically grounded research on issues related to single European states, the European Union, and their connections with other regions of the world. Themes of interest include the aftermath of Brexit, rise of populism and the polarization of the political spectrum, refugee crisis, challenges at the border of Europe, and the economic and geopolitical interactions with the US, China, Africa, and the Middle East.
The Center for French and Francophone Studies is the hub for all people and things related to, and interested in, the French language in its diverse expressions. Its home is the Department of Romance Studies but it reaches out across the Duke campus. By nature, it is multidisciplinary and as international as our faculty and students. It celebrates, and interrogates, the protean nature of “Francophonie” through public events and discussions, collaborative research projects, and service-oriented initiatives.
