Courses

Bass Connections courses incorporate elements of our model – team-based, applied learning around societal challenges; interdisciplinary inquiry; and sometimes vertical integration – into a semester-long course. Through these courses, students can gain expertise in addressing complex societal problems within teams. Students can search for Bass Connections courses in Duke Hub by using the Advanced Search feature. In the Course Attribute field, select “Interest Area.” Then, select “Bass Connections” as the Course Attribute Value.

Faculty who currently teach a course that aligns with this model are invited to reach out to us to discuss how we might spotlight the course. Faculty who are interested in integrating collaborative projects into a course can find resources and example syllabi in our Collaborative Project Courses: Course Design Resource Center and can participate in our Collaborative Project Courses Faculty Fellows Program
