This is Undergraduate Science Education

Welcome faculty, students and parents.   The Office of Science Education brings you resources for improving undergraduate science education at Harvard for both the Physical Sciences and the Life Sciences Concentration Cluster, under the support and direction of The Division of Science which fosters learning and collaboration cross disiplines.  

Undergraduate Education in the Physical Sciences

The Physical Sciences has extraordinary resources for study and research, with ample opportunity for collaboration between disciplines. Students typically begin their study either with interdisciplinary courses in the Physical Sciences sequence or with foundational courses in one of the relevant departments.  As you continue in the Physical Sciences, courses become concentration focused.
