Harvard Summer School Gen Ed Courses

Designated Harvard Summer School (HSS) and Harvard Summer Study Abroad courses may count for General Education. Ordinarily, summer courses count if they are identical to courses that receive General Education credit during the academic year and are taught by the same Harvard faculty members who teach them during the academic year (or by a member of the same department).

The following Summer 2023 courses count for Gen Ed credit. Please note that no more than one HSS course taught through remote formats may be used to fulfill a General Education requirement.  HSS courses taken in 2020 and 2021 (when all courses were offered remotely) do not count towards this limit.

Further details about HSS courses can be found in the Harvard Summer School Course Catalog.
