Is the list of courses that meet secondary-field requirements the same as the list of courses that meet the concentration "elective" requirements?

No. Only courses in the Government Department, and a small number of outside courses taught by Government Department faculty, may be used toward the secondary field requirements. Many of the courses outside the Department that concentrators take for elective credit (for instance, courses at the Harvard Kennedy School) cannot be used toward the secondary field.

If you are interested in the secondary field, please review the requirements carefully, as no exceptions will be granted from those requirements.
