Considered part of the Spring semester, WinterSession is a special term at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health which runs for three weeks in January each year. This period provides a break from the academic routine of fall and spring semesters and offers a space for creativity and experiential learning.
The Department of Global Health and Population hosts several international travel courses during WinterSession. These experiences offer graduate students the unique opportunity to apply the academic frameworks and tools learned throughout the year in a dynamic and professional environment by simulating the work that they may engage in after graduation.
