AGE Degree Electives

AGE degree programs require that students complete Basic Science course electives or Education course electives.  A list of popular courses that have been previously evaluated and approved for either Basic Science or Education credit types are listed below.  (Biostatistics credit type is only applicable to certain students).  You may refer to the Harvard University Catalog for current course offerings and other important course information.

 

Should there be an interest in a course that is not listed, please visit our webpage about Basic Science guidelines to determine a course's eligibility for Basic Science credit prior to enrolling.

 

If courses are taken that have not been approved for the listed credit type, it will be presumed that the student is taking the course for the student’s own edification or for requirements unrelated to the degree.
