As one of the oldest universities in the United States and a consistent source of highly educated graduates, Harvard University has become synonymous with higher education over its more than 350-year existence.
Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts of the Greater Boston metropolitan area, Harvard University claims itself to be the nation’s first higher educational institution. Harvard was established in 1636 and has kept a tradition of rigorous and superb academia ever since.
Highly competitive for undergraduate admissions, Harvard University enrolls about half the number of undergraduate students than graduate students each year. Though relatively small by public university standards, Harvard employs some of the greatest minds in the world to instruct their undergraduate and graduate courses.
Bachelor’s degrees are offered in almost every field, while Harvard’s graduate programs include business, design, education, law, medicine, dental and a few more. With hundreds of millions in sponsored research funds, Harvard is able to sustain over 100 research centers, on campus and around the world. Faculty, fellows, graduate students, and even undergraduate students participate in numerous research projects supported by Harvard University.
Though academic excellence can be found across all Harvard programs, its business and law schools are particularly revered.
Though Harvard University prides itself on academic excellence, students still find time to participate in the many sports teams available to men and women, including crew, hockey, track, water polo and several more.
Harvard University’s elite reputation can be a little intimidating, but don’t let that discourage you. Check out the Harvard Fact Book online for more details regarding admissions.
