Application Process

FALL 2022 UPDATE:  Students enrolled in a Harvard graduate degree program are eligible. In the event that courses are oversubscribed, preference will be given to Harvard Chan School students. Instructor permission is required for enrollment.

We work closely with Harvard Global Support Services to execute well-planned trips in order to stay safe and informed while abroad. International travel continues to involve uncertainty surrounding the pandemic as well as varying regional conditions including crime, terrorism, political or civil unrest, infrastructure, access to medical care, or natural disasters. While we intend for all travel courses to resume in January 2023, participants should always be prepared to adapt to any changes.

Information Sessions

Informational meetings are organized for instructors to meet with interested applicants.  Course plans for January 2023 will be reviewed during these meetings.
