In late April, after lengthy discussion and consideration, the Arts and Sciences Council at Duke approved a proposal to create the new certificate program, which has both academic and co-curricular requirements.
Students in the certificate program will take a gateway class, a capstone seminar and two electives. They will also complete significant volunteer, civic and/or community service with at least two programs, one a 300-hour commitment and one a 150-hour commitment.
DukeEngage participants are encouraged to learn more about the certificate program, as their summer hours of program service likely exceed the larger 300-hour requirement.
