What is a Secondary Field?
In addition to offering concentrations, many Harvard departments also offer students the option of pursuing a less intensive structured course of study: secondary fields. Secondary fields may be of especial interest to students whose elective course choices cluster in a particular area of study, providing them with an opportunity to explore an intellectual passion in greater depth. Secondary fields are entirely optional.
