MIT School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences

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; by educating leading science communicators; and by advancing potential solutions to the cultural barriers that thwart effective climate policy.

MIT's humanistic faculty also teach every MIT undergraduate, empowering the next generation of problem-solvers with a range of critical skills and historical, cultural, and global perspectives needed for success in every endeavor.
