Application Process

FALL 2021 UPDATE:  Harvard University aims to gradually resume travel as conditions warrant, while being mindful of the significant uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and varying regional conditions. Current guidance allows travel to international destinations rated Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 for COVID-19 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We aim to make a final decision on course format (travel vs online/remote) in late September to allow ample time for planning and preparation.

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