Reading Course

HOLLIS_owl

The Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies helps students read more purposefully and selectively, with greater speed and comprehension. The Reading Course is especially helpful for students who find themselves overwhelmed by the volume and complexity of their reading.

Taught since the 1940s, the Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies is constantly being renovated to blend tried-and-true study strategies with the latest approaches to reading and learning in the digital age. About 400 students enroll in the course each year.
