I'm brand new to SharePoint 2013, and only have a basic working knowledge so far.

My manager would like to take a List of projects from one site group, and use it on our department's home page. I have tried using a Web Part > Page Viewer, but I want to display just the list, not the whole page.

Is this doable through the browser? Or do I need to use SPDesigner and/or some scripting?
