Taking a Course
We offer a variety of ways for you to take courses so you can find the option that works best with your schedule. Online, on campus in the evening, at a scheduled time weekly or a bit more self-paced through the semester. Read about our various course formats.
Courses may be relocated, rescheduled, or canceled. See Enrollment Policies. Please check the website before classes begin for up-to-date classroom assignments. The campus map shows building locations.
Our courses are taught by faculty who are Harvard scholars, industry experts, leading researchers, entrepreneurs—and instructors dedicated to their students.
