Summer School Policy

Primary Concentrators in Government: Generally, students can count only one Harvard Summer School Government course, taught either on campus or abroad, towards their Government concentration requirements. If that course is not taught by a Harvard Government Department faculty member, the student must petition the Government DUS before the course is taken.

Secondary Concentrators (Secondary Field) in Government: Secondary concentrators can count only one Harvard Summer School Government course, taught on campus by a Harvard Government Department faculty member, towards their secondary concentration in Government. Petitions are not accepted from secondary concentrators.
