Student in FieldThe major graduate program for advanced study offered at the Harvard Forest is the Masters in Forest Science, which is a thesis-oriented program based in Petersham through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University.

Intensive programs offered during course recess are also open to graduate students, including Winter Break Week (for Harvard students only).

Doctoral programs offered through other departments at Harvard provide additional opportunities for research at the Harvard Forest in conjunction with scientists based there. These departments include Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Earth and Planetary Science, and the Graduate School of Design.

In addition, a number of scientists at the Forest hold adjunct status at the Department of Natural Resource Conservation at the University of Massachusetts ( UMass DNRC ) where they serve as advisors for students pursuing either the MS or PhD degrees.
