Social Sciences @ MIT

There’s no better place to solve problems—and serve humanity.

At its core, MIT is a place where people devote their brains, and often their lives, to solving the world’s thorniest problems. The social sciences offer a lens to analyze the human systems that drive and influence virtually every aspect of how we vote, invest, transact, and govern. And studying at MIT—a place where first-rate minds analyze systems and perform research at the highest level anywhere—gives you access to both exceptional insight and great career preparation.
