Thank you for your interest in applying to the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
The GSD offers a dynamic setting for the exchange of ideas across the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning and design, and design studies—united in the pursuit of a more just, coherent, and beautiful world.
