The Arts and Sciences Council is considering allowing students to fulfill their graduation course requirements with credits from online courses. If passed, the proposal would increase the number of Duke courses required for graduation from 17 to 24 out of 34 total credits. It would also allow students to take up to one online course per semester. “The proposal gives 10 degrees of freedom they can mix and match from,” said William Seaman, a member of the executive committee of the Arts and Sciences Council and professor of visual studies. “Our students are rate busters and generally do much more than 34 courses, and thus we asked what is the minimum. The restriction is about articulating what a strong Duke education will be.”
