The GSAS Policies page link below describes the academic requirements, policies, and programs for GSAS and the PhD in Population Health Sciences (PHS): GSAS Policies (please pay attention to the tabs on the left side of page). PHS students are responsible for general knowledge of, and adherence to, the policies and requirements described in both the GSAS Handbook and the PHS Student Handbook, which is provided at the start of the academic year, as well as those in the handbooks provided to them by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and individual PHS Fields of Study (FoS). Where school-wide and/or program policies overlap, the GSAS policy always takes precedence.
As a matter of policy, law, and commitment, Harvard University and its Trustees, the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the PhD in Population Health Sciences do not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, veteran status, or handicap in admissions to, access to, treatment in, or employment in their programs and activities.
