Exploring Fields of Study - Learn about Earth and Planetary Sciences and Undergraduate Research

March 2, 2021

As part of the “Exploring Fields of Study” event hosted by the College, we are hosting an event for prospective students on Tuesday, March 2nd at 5:00 pm ET. We would love to have you there to help talk about your experience in EPS, ask questions about EPS, or just be a friendly face on Zoom. As an added bonus, the GeoSoc (the EPS undergraduate society) will be hosting a panel event about research from 5:30-6:30. Feel free to invite friends. The event details are on the College Calendar and also pasted below.We are looking forward to seeing you there!

5:00-5:30 pm: Join faculty and students from EPS during this Exploring Fields of Study event! We will provide some introduction to the department and have time for questions about what it is like to concentrate in EPS.

5:30-6:30 pm: The undergrads of the Earth & Planetary Sciences department and the Harvard Geological Society (Geosoc) invite you to a Research in Earth & Environmental Science Panel. Learn all about opportunities to get involved in Earth & environmental science summer research at Harvard and beyond! Current EPS undergraduates and a faculty member will be there to answer questions about

  • finding research opportunities,
  • applying for funding,
  • writing proposals,
  • cold emailing, and much more

We will also discuss their diverse academic interests and research, including climate modeling, GIS and environmental data science, biogeochemistry, and more! If you want to get involved in interdisciplinary research (remote or otherwise) as an underclassman this summer but don’t know where to start, please join us! We especially encourage students who are interested in STEM but have never thought about studying geosciences to attend - this is a vastly interdisciplinary and diverse field where folks interested in chemistry, physics, biology, statistics, computer science, data science, environmental justice, climate change, or all of the above can find a home!
