FOCUS Schedule

The Focus Program offers clusters every fall semester. The themes vary year to year but the schedule remains consistent.

FOCUS students' schedule includes:

  • two seminars
  • one interdisciplinary discussion course (IDC), and
  • two additional courses chosen by the student.

Enrollment includes the residence in a living/learning community on East Campus. 

Your Focus Program courses will fulfill multiple graduation requirements as specified in Trinity College’s T-Reqs and the Pratt School of Engineering’s general degree requirements.

Students register independently for the additional courses on DukeHub and will be automatically enrolled in the FOCUS courses before book-bags open. FOCUS students register during the summer.

Students must receive permission from the Focus Program to change FOCUS courses during these registration windows. Students are strongly discouraged from withdrawing from the program after registration has been completed.
