We ordinarily admit between 12 to 15 new graduate students each year. The ratio of students to faculty is 2:1. As a student in our program, you are joining a supportive community both intellectually and socially. Graduate student colloquium is a core part of our program, as are cook-outs, parties and the annual graduate school camp-out for Duke men's basketball tickets.
