Fourth-Year Master's Degree for Advanced Standing Students

Harvard Advanced Standing students have an opportunity in their fourth year to pursue the Master of Arts (AM) in EPS. Policies for this degree are administered by the EPS Graduate Studies Committee. The combined AB-AM degree is intended for strong science or engineering students with an interest in the earth sciences. An undergraduate who wishes to apply for this degree must apply online for admission to the graduate program in EPS in their third year.  We encourage interested students to look into program requirements as early as freshman year.
