All MIT undergrads are SHASS students
The MIT SHASS disciplines are central to the Institute's mission to provide all MIT undergraduates with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to make lasting contributions to the nation and the world.
All MIT undergraduates spend substantial time on subjects like literature, languages, economics, music, and history. In fact, every MIT undergraduate takes a minimum of eight such classes — nearly 25% of the total class time.
