Undergraduate Degrees

Whether you want to continue earning an undergraduate degree that you began elsewhere, or you’re interested in earning a full degree at a part-time pace, Harvard Extension School has two options to help you balance school and other commitments.

Bachelor of Liberal Arts Program

In our bachelor’s degree program, you can further develop your critical thinking skills, strengthen your communication skills, and explore specialized fields of study and minors for career advancement.

You begin by taking three admission courses before applying to the program. This gives you the opportunity to explore courses and establish your ability to succeed as a Harvard student.

Once you’re admitted, you complete your remaining coursework through a combination of online and on-campus options. You come to the Harvard campus to take at least four courses (16 credits).
