Majors & Minors
When you apply to MIT, you apply to the entire university, not to a specific major or school. All first-year students begin MIT with an undeclared major. During the freshman year, MIT will provide academic fairs, lectures, seminars, and other programs to help students determine which major will suit them best; they then are free to choose from MIT's majors, without any additional requirements or admission procedures.
MIT is organized into academic departments, or Courses, which you will often hear referred to by their Course number or acronym. These academic departments offer various undergraduate degrees and minors. MIT announced a record number of new majors and minors for 2016. New majors are Business Analytics, Finance, Management, and Mathematical Economics. New minors are Business Analytics, Civil and Environmental Systems, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Design, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Environmental Engineering Science, Finance, Management, and Statistics and Data Science. MIT offers a total of 49 major and 56 minor programs. The complete list of bachelor's degree programs and minor programs is below.
