pSearch - Humanities
2013 to 2015
Perhaps the best way to get a jumpstart on your four years at Duke is to participate in a pre-orientation program. One of these, pSearch, is designed as an introduction to undergraduate research. Professor Philip Stern leads a humanities/social sciences track that focuses on independent research, guiding students in the tools and methods of humanistic inquiry as they develop their own research projects in an area of their choosing—such as history, art, literature, music, law, politics, or global health. Students are introduced to the various resources available for study at Duke through visits to The Edge, the Nasher Museum of Art, the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and more.
