MIT School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences - Great Ideas Change the World

Interdisciplinary Programs

 
           

 

Providing opportunities for interdisciplinary study is a priority at MIT-SHASS.

MIT's mission of meeting the world's great challenges requires not only superb technical and scientific creativity, but also a deep understanding of the human complexities -- cultural, political, and economic -- in which the world's challenges are embedded. MIT-SHASS offers undergraduate programs which each embrace several academic disciplines to take a multi-faceted approach to these issues. Typically, these programs are taught collaboratively by faculty from various fields in the School and, in some cases, from other schools within the Institute.

For full descriptions of the programs, including the program coordinators, click on the names below. The program coordinator or the HASS Academic Administrator can provide additional support for each.
