MIT has a strong, collaborative focus on climate and environmental research, combining technical advances with research and education in the political, cultural, and economic dimensions of climate and related issues.
Faculty and students in MIT's School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (MIT SHASS) contribute to increased planetary health via research that informs better public policy, and by advancing potential solutions — including science communication — to the barriers to effective climate policy.
The MIT SHASS faculty also teach every MIT undergraduate, empowering the next generation of problem-solvers with a range of critical skills and big picture perspectives needed for success in every endeavor.
