The Government Department has more undergraduate concentrators than any department at Harvard save Economics. There are lots of advantages in this: we have many more faculty members, graduate students, and visiting scholars than most departments. You can find someone here who is an expert on almost any political matter that interests you. Our large numbers also allow us, in conjunction with our related Centers, to sponsor many more talks and events every semester than any human being (even a Harvard undergrad!) could possibly attend.

But a large concentration also has a potential drawback: students may feel as if they have been lost in the shuffle.  The mission of the Undergraduate Program Office is to make sure that this doesn't happen to you!  We have a variety of people and resources in place to help you get the information and support you need—at every stage—to navigate your way successfully through the Government concentration.

Whether you're new to the concentration or an old hand, we are looking forward to seeing you in CGIS K151!
