Can students apply for this coming fall?
Yes. We are accepting applications for this Fall. Interested students
should contact contact Assistant Dean Ros Reid directly to apply. (Going forward, the deadline for the fall will be March.)
Are there restrictions based upon a graduate student's year status (e.g., G3, G4, etc.)?
The first-term-of-third-year "rule" should be taken as guideline, not a strict rule. We accept students in any year, provided there is enough time to complete the program before they get their Ph.D. degree.
How long it will take the student to complete the program? Is there a maximum number of terms or years in which the student
has to complete it?
There are no set time limits. We expect that students will need, on average, two courses more than their regular Ph.D. courses (when all the details are worked out with various departments.) This is equivalent to 1/2 a semester of course work. The required 4 courses can be spread out over the entire course of their graduate study.
Is it a formal certificate? And is transcribible (meaning does it appear on the official Harvard transcript)?
Yes, it is a transcribable, formal certificate.
