Declaring a Philosophy Concentration


To declare Philosophy as your concentration or as a primary or allied field in a joint concentration, you should first meet with one of us in the Director of Undergraduate Studies Office. We are:

Bernhard Nickel (DUS):

Cheryl Chen (Associate DUS):

Lidal Dror (Assistant DUS):

Nyasha Bovell (Undergraduate Coordinator):

You can sign up for appointments by following this link or drop by Nyashal’s office in Emerson 303 during regular business hours.

You do not need to complete the “plan of study” tool on my.harvard. After you meet with us, just go ahead and submit your concentration declaration form on my.harvard ( and we’ll release the electronic hold.

The concentration declaration deadline for Sophomores is November 8, 2018.

Welcome to Philosophy!
