Advising

Sign up for a general Arts & Humanities advising conversation, or reach out to our departments.

 

Opportunities to form academic advising relationships abound at Harvard. The Advising Programs Office oversees the Board of First-Year Advisers and Peer Advising Fellows for first-year students. In addition, faculty and staff in our A&H departments are eager to advise you on course selection and concentration prospects from your first day on campus. Feel free to reach out to a specific departmental contact, or sign up for a general advising conversation with an A&H faculty member using our calendar below.

A&H at the Office of Career Services

For students in the Arts & Humanities, summers and winter intersessions provide chances to pursue professional development while building on curricular exploration. While the differing economic needs of students may guide their choices, we in the Arts & Humanities are striving to enable all students interested in pursuing related careers to find opportunities while at Harvard in keeping with their aspirations.

Harvard’s Office of Career Services is an incomparable resource for discovering opportunities for internships and jobs in varying fields. Through their resources and staff, the OCS can help you plan a job search, write and edit an effective résumé and cover letter, practice interviewing, and advise you on employment options and career pathways.

Explore the OCS website, especially the section on Career Pathways and Job & Internship Search at https://ocs.fas.harvard.edu/resources
