Duke English Distinction Day


2023 English Graduates of Distinction

Please join us April 21 for the English Department's Distinction Day, which will be a great opportunity for you to see what a completed project looks like, how creative you can get, and in how many ways you can develop your interests. There will be a Q&A at the end of each session, so you'll have the opportunity to ask questions.
