The Secondary Field in Educational Studies offers Harvard College undergraduates an opportunity to examine education from multiple disciplinary perspectives. 

Students pursuing the secondary field may explore a broad overview including course work related to individual learning, schools as organizations, the role of education in society and educational policy. Alternatively, students may choose to focus in depth on a particular aspect of education such as social stratification, literacy, childhood and adolescence, or policy.  There are many possibilities and students are encouraged to get in touch with the Director of the secondary field for help with developing a plan of study.
