Harvard College offers academic opportunities to its students that are virtually unsurpassed at American universities. Courses taught by world-class scholars are available on topics that span the globe, cover the latest scientific discoveries, and delve deeply into the realms of art and culture and into the past. Harvard College students pursue knowledge both broadly and in depth, intellectually tasting a range of important topics and approaches to human knowledge while they also undertake advanced work within a special area of concentration.
The Faculty’s departmental structure supports programs that guide concentrators from their first introduction to a field to greater levels of sophistication, while a number of other academic programs support Harvard students’ broader educational needs and specialized academic opportunities. Students negotiate the array of academic offerings with the help of an extensive advising system that is offered through the concentrations and in the residences, and that addresses student concerns from the most routine administrative questions to questions about shaping academic programs that are right for an individual student’s needs. Many non-curricular resources are available that help translate our students’ goals into reality.
