Program Details

Prerequisites for Entering the 3-2 Program

  • To be eligible to enter a Duke master’s program after three years of undergraduate study at Warren Wilson, you must have taken:
    • College level course in Calculus* (required)
    • College level course in Statistics* (required)
    • Natural or Social Science courses related to your area of interest
    • Undergraduate experience and training in professional writing
    • Any prerequisites required for your intended master’s degree and concentration. See Duke’s requirements for more information.

    *Students must earn a minimum grade of B- and earn college credit in order for these courses to count toward the prerequisite. Pass/Fail courses and self-paced courses will not fulfill these requirements.

Duke is on an incredible playing field in higher education. Our students’ access to Duke is tremendously important. This partnership allows our students to be part of a small school and then have the larger school experience. It gives them the best of both worlds.
