Harvard Summer School - Summer 2020


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SUMMER 2020: All Harvard Summer School courses have been moved online for Summer 2020.  Although Departmental policy typically prohibits students from receiving concentration credit for online summer courses, given these special circumstances, the Department will award concentration credit for the following Summer 2020 courses that have been approved by FAS faculty vote to count for Harvard College credit.
