Studying post-Soviet cinema? We’ve got a librarian for that. Middle Eastern paleography? There’s a librarian for that. Don’t know what paleography is? We don’t either, but the Duke Libraries have you covered.

The international and area studies librarians have specialized knowledge about many of the countries, regions and languages you will study at Duke. Contact them if you need help researching your next paper or project.


As a Duke student, your study abroad and global engagement opportunities are almost endless. So the Academic Advising Center hired a team of awesome people who specialize in helping you find international opportunities that fit your schedule and interests.

If you’d like to meet with a Director of Academic Engagement, you can schedule an appointment online or call the office.

Cultural and language training

Duke’s International House is a great place to gain cultural competency and improve your foreign language skills. If you’re studying a foreign language, I-House can pair you with a native speaker to practice with. They also organize weekly social gatherings and workshops
