The MAERES curriculum is organized across five disciplines:
Together with the CERES directors, students plan a directed program of study that includes coursework in at least three of the five fields. Students complete a total of twelve courses, including the two core seminars and two advanced language courses. The other eight courses are selected according to the student’s academic interests and the multidisciplinary requirement.
The Capstone Seminar requires that the student make a public presentation of the research project to CERES students and faculty.
