Advising

The Department provides undergraduates interested in Psychology with a number of people who can help design the most fulfilling course of study possible. These advisors will continue to provide guidance as students progress through the concentration or secondary field!

Psychology has a team of graduate student Concentration Advisors assigned by house who are available for guidance on requirements, courses, research opportunities, and possible careers. When you declare a concentration in Psychology, the Concentration Advisor in your house will become your official advisor, approve your declaration on my.harvard, and sign your Crimson Cart. Your Concentration Advisor will contact you at the start of each semester to check in, and you can contact them at any time. Your Advisor is your go-to person within the department – they will help you select courses, discuss your overall progress in the field, talk about your interests, and make you aware of opportunities at and outside of Harvard.

You are welcome to reach out the Concentration Advisor for your house even if you have not yet declared a Psychology concentration!

 

Drop-In Advising


The Undergraduate Office hosts weekly drop-in advising hours (schedule below).  All students are welcome to stop in for any questions about the concentration, the secondary field, study abroad, or other advising needs! We are also happy to chat with prospective concentrators.  If this time does not work for your schedule, please email us at psychology@wjh.harvard.edu to set up a time to chat.
