Advising

The History and Science concentration has a friendly team of advisers to help you navigate through the program.

Allie Belser, Manager of Student Programs, acts as the primary concentration adviser for all History and Science concentrators.  She is available to all students seeking advice on concentration requirements, course selection, plans of study and declarations of concentration, the senior thesis process, non-thesis honors options, study abroad, the secondary field in History of Science, and of course to assist with any concerns.  You can email Allie at ajbelser@fas.harvard.edu with your questions or to make an appointment.  She has regular drop-in office hours on Mondays from 2:30-4:30 pm.

Prof. Alex Csiszar will be Acting Director of Undergraduate Studies during the 2017-2018 academic year. He is also available to talk about requirements and course selection, but his primary role is to help students understand the range of intellectual opportunities they can pursue in the concentration and how best to take full advantage of our flexible structure. With Allie, he is also always available to trouble shoot any problems that might come up for students.  Professor Csiszar also teaches History of Science 100, and oversees the tutorial program as a whole. You can email him at acsiszar@fas.harvard.edu.  His office hours for the fall term are Wednesdays 10:30-12:00 and Thursdays 11:30-12:00, 1:30-2:30.  Please sign up here.
