A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

Harvard University

Cambridge, MA

Harvard says that 'Harvard has long required that students take a set of courses outside of their concentration in order to ensure that their undergraduate education encompasses a broad range of topics and approaches. The Program in General Education aligns these requirements with the educational needs of Harvard College students at the dawn of the twenty-first century. General Education seeks explicitly to connect a student's liberal education ' that is, an education conducted in a spirit of free inquiry, rewarding in its own right ' to life beyond college.'
