Graduate study leading up to the Ph.D. degree is supervised by a faculty advisory committee made up in accordance with each student's aims and interests. Fields of teaching and research include atmospheric chemistry, dynamic meteorology, economic geology, geochemistry, geophysics, mineralogy, oceanography, paleontology, petrology, sedimentology, seismology, stratigraphy, and structural geology. In addition, courses may be taken in chemistry, physics, engineering, or biology. Under reciprocal arrangements, graduate students at Harvard may take and receive credit for courses given at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
