Greetings Students —
At MIT, we view the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) as essential, both for educating great engineers, scientists, thinkers, and citizens, and for sustaining the Institute’s capacity for innovation. From this page, you can take a virtual tour through the entire range of MIT's HASS fields of study and discover which options are the most meaningful for your goals. Get started by clicking on the photographs below.
All MIT HASS classes are designed to empower our students to succeed — to serve the world well, with innovations and lives that are rich in meaning and wisdom. In HASS studies and explorations, MIT students gain critical thinking and communication skills, cultural and historical perspectives, fluent language abilities, and knowledge about economic and political forces.
In addition to the MIT HASS requirement, students can pursue a major and/or a minor in HASS fields, exploring interests that support, balance, or expand studies in MIT's STEM fields. All MIT HASS classes empower professional success, whatever one's major field, and open windows onto a lifetime of creativity and growth.
