DukeImmerse: Uprooted/Rerouted is both immersive and intense–super intense. We welcome students from any and all backgrounds who want to commit to a semester long investigation of displacement. No prior experience is necessary–only the strong willingness to jump right in. Think of Uprooted/Rerouted as Focus on steroids: a semester-long, research-based, student-faculty collaboration on a single theme–forced migration–plus a weekly dinner meeting and a four-week mid-semester field trip to Nepal or Egypt with international travel funded by Duke (watch a video of students in the 2012 program performing monologues of refugee experiences).
We guarantee you’ll never work so hard or have so much fun. Toward that end, we ask each applicant to briefly answer 3 questions. Applications are due October 19 at noon and decisions will be made on October 30; we may conduct interviews with finalists.
