The requirements chart below is for concentration and Psychology students based on track. Click here for more Psychology Concentration Information in the Harvard College Handbook.
Please note that Psychology does NOT permit joint concentrations, but we do encourage other pathways to interdisciplinary work.

All courses must be taken for a letter grade, with the exception of Freshman Seminars, PSY 985, and PSY 991, which are graded SAT/UNSAT.
Note: Elsewhere on Harvard websites, you may come across the term "half-course." A half-course is a course that takes one semester to complete (rather than a full year), and is typically worth 4 credits. Because most Psychology courses are technically "half-courses," we find it easier to simply use the term "course" to refer to these.
