What Makes Extension Unique
Deep learning springs from human connection. That’s why we work so hard to bring people together — whether in a live virtual classroom or an in-person seminar on campus.
Our flexible pathways and transparent admissions emphasize what you’re capable of today—not a test or course you took years ago.
Expect to be challenged. You'll learn from industry experts and faculty from Harvard and peer institutions.
You're balancing a lot. We get it. Our courses are designed to help you study while managing career and life commitments.
Gain meaningful insights and make valuable connections. Then put them to work in your career and life pursuits.
Finding balance was the biggest challenge during my time at Extension. But being able to attend class remotely was a huge help. I was on the road almost every week and was glad I could call in to class from wherever I was.”
