Here at MIT

We teach a wide array of undergraduate subjects, help to train a talented cohort of graduate students in the History, Anthropology and Science, Technology and Society (HASTS) doctoral program, publish prize-winning monographs and essays that are grounded in deep archival research and employ cutting-edge methodologies, and reach out to public audiences around the world. History especially seeks to give MIT students a full educational experience that will prepare them to be active members of their local communities and an increasingly global society. In all of these activities we are committed to carrying on the tradition of excellence that has made MIT an important engine of knowledge production and distribution in the humanities and social sciences.
