Courses

Bass Connections courses are those that 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 also locate such courses using the Course Attribute feature in DukeHub and selecting Bass Connections under the “Interest Area” field.
