Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2020

Pros: incredibly devoted professors (in my subdiscipline) modeling integrity in their own work and warm generous interest in their students. Cons: attempted interdisciplinary of literature and theology could be broader, more inquisitive, and better balanced between the two disciplines.

Econ MA is very demanding and serves as a good transit for those who want to pursue doctoral degree.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2017

The only downside about Duke Graduate school is that the career center is the worst I have ever seen. This needs to be addressed by Duke ASAP.

Pros - excellent faculty, well-designed curriculum, program is in-touch with current demands of academia and positions students well to get an academic job Cons - social life isn't great, culture of grad school minimal relative to environments at other top universities, parking is extremely limited and students must take shuttle into campus

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

The program at Duke is great and so is the university in general. The facilities such as study spaces and classroom are a little outdated. The city of Durham is not a nice place to live. In addition, it is extremely difficult to get around the city as the bus network is inefficient and unreliable.

Degree: Biology

With the exception of parking, I can't imagine a better graduate school experience.
