The FAS also encompasses academic resources such as libraries and museums, as well as campus resources and athletics.
93. Harvard University - Law SchoolHarvard Law School offers an energetic and creative learning environment, a diverse and dedicated faculty—whose expertise spans a broad array of legal subjects—and a student body that comes from every state in the U.S. and more than 70 countries around the world.
Approximately 1,900 students attend HLS each year: 1,680 J.D. students, 160 LL.M. students, and 50 S.J.D. candidates. The faculty includes more than 100 full-time professors and more than 150 visiting professors, lecturers on law, and instructors. The curriculum features more than 260 courses and seminars that cover a broad range of traditional and emerging legal fields.
A Harvard Law education prepares students for success in law practice, business, public service, teaching, and more. Most HLS students are pursuing a J.D. (Juris Doctor) degree, while many others are earning an LL.M. (Master of Laws) or the S.J.D. (Doctor of Juridical Science). Harvard Law School also offers many joint degree programs, coordinated programs, and concurrent degree opportunities with other schools within Harvard University. The Law School community is also home to numerous research programs and engaging publications, including books, scholarly periodicals, newsletters, and a weekly student newspaper.
94. Harvard University - Materials Research Science and Engineering CenterThe Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) is the focus of Harvard's long tradition of interdisciplinary materials research. The Harvard MRSEC is funded by the National Science Foundation, and identifies new research areas to train and retain students in materials Science and engineering.
95. Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE)The Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE) encourages research and education about the environment and its many interactions with human society.
The Center draws its strength from faculty members and students across the University who make up a remarkable intellectual community of scholars, researchers, and teachers of diverse fields including chemistry, earth and planetary Sciences, engineering and applied Sciences, biology, public health and medicine, government, business, economics, religion, and the law. The most pressing problems facing our natural environment are complex, often requiring collaborative investigation by scholars versed in different disciplines. By connecting scholars and practitioners from different disciplines, the Center for the Environment seeks to raise the quality of environmental research at Harvard and beyond.
The Center seeks to provide the next generation of Harvard-educated researchers, policymakers and corporate leaders with a comprehensive interdisciplinary environmental education, while fostering linkages and partnerships amongst different parts of the University as well as between the University and the outside world.
Through a variety of grants and fellowships, the Center supports research related to the environment at every level, from undergraduates through senior faculty members. By sponsoring symposia, public lectures, and informal student convocations, the Center connects people with an interest in the environment.

97. Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and TechnologyGraduate Education Program in Space Life Sciences
NSBRI's Graduate Education Program in Space Life Sciences is conducted jointly at Texas A&M University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. Students in these programs work toward a Ph.D. that focuses on space life Sciences.
The program is developing modules to strengthen current graduate curricula at these two institutions enabling students to experience advanced courses in biomedical Science and engineering, specifically as these fields relate to the space program. Once fully developed, it is anticipated that the educational modules will be applicable to accredited doctoral programs across the nation.
98. Heidelberg University - Department of Physics and AstronomyThe department of physics and astronomy is dedicated to a broadly laid-out programme of teaching and research. It feels itself committed to Humboldt's ideal of teaching rooted in research and sees its research programme an the borders of knowledge as a prerequisite for teaching and training its students at high quality.
Research encompasses core areas of fundamental physics as well as interdisciplinary border areas. In the core areas, research focuses on elementary particle physics, the structure and evolution of the universe, and the properties of complex classical and quantum systems. The interdisciplinary border areas include environmental physics, bio- and medical physics as well as technical computer Science. Research is located at 4 department institutes and the Heidelberg Centre for Astronomy. Apart from that, the research environment in Heidelberg is distinguished by a multitude of extra-university research institutions which are topically and personally closely connected to the department. ... more.
The courses of studies include a Bachelor-Masters programme, the state examination for teachers at secondary schools and a doctoral programme with a wide scope. The department is currently educating ca. 1400 students. Among them are 900 in the undergraduate and Diploma or Masters courses, and 500 in the doctoral programme. With ca 170 Masters graduations and 100 doctoral degrees awarded per year, Heidelberg is at the top of all German physics departments. Education and training are strongly oriented towards research. The Bachelor course is offered in German only, the Master course in English. ... more.
99. High School Computer Science - Wolfram Demonstrations ProjectConceived by Mathematica creator and scientist Stephen Wolfram as a way to bring computational exploration to the widest possible audience, the Wolfram Demonstrations Project is an open-code resource that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts in Science, technology, mathematics, art, finance, and a remarkable range of other fields.
Its daily growing collection of interactive illustrations is created by Mathematica users from around the world who participate by contributing innovative Demonstrations.
Interactive computational resources have typically been scattered across the web. Moreover, their creation requires specialized programming knowledge, making them difficult and expensive to develop. As a result, their breadth and reach are limited.
100. High School Earth ScienceThis book was originally developed by the CK-12 Foundation, a non-profit organization with a mission to reduce the cost of textbook materials for the K-12 market both in the U.S. and worldwide. This textbook has been designed to meet California and U.S. standards.
