The Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University offers courses dedicated to the critical study of inequality.
While the following courses may be taken as electives, they also count towards the Inequality Studies Minor:
History of Inequality Studies
This course introduces students to the field of Inequality Studies by exploring the origins and outcomes of social inequality over time.
Methods in Inequality Studies
This course employs qualitative, quantitative, and archival research methodologies to focus on issues related to race, gender, ability, and class disparities.
University courses at Duke offer gateway experiences to help undergraduates make sense of complex societal issues, while featuring the breadth of extraordinary scholarship and teachers we enjoy at Duke.
Duke Immerse is a semester-long program in which undergraduates enroll in a cluster of four courses designed by Duke faculty around a central theme. Immerse themes take a deep dive into a significant global challenge focused with a multidisciplinary lens.
These courses offer students the opportunity to advance their understanding of race, inequality, and ethics while broadening their perspectives on complex global challenges.
