A house course exploring (inter)religious diversity
Lectures and programs connecting academic interests and religious experience
Opportunities to connect learning with the local community, through service projects, site visits, and social action.
Living in community
Housed within Blue Ridge House (Keohane Quad 4B, West Campus), E&R is about building friendships through shared meals, house events, retreats, trips and religious exploration.
Where does the name "Eruditio et Religio" come from?
Eruditio et Religio is the motto of Duke University, and translates roughly to "Faith and Learning," or "Religion and Knowledge." Bringing these together is one aspect of the rich heritage of Duke University, and we use the name to highlight this history and how it operates today.
Who can apply?
Applications will open later in the fall, and all Duke undergraduates are welcome to apply (f you are graduating this December or May, that is). Stay tuned for more information about the application process.
Do I need to be a part of a Religious Life group?
Participation in a religious life group is not required. We welcome all applicants: Atheist to Zoroastrian.
Do I have to live on campus?
Yes. Living together is a core feature of the living learning community. Students in the program live in Keohane Quad 4B Upper - Blue Ridge House.
