On Sept. 10, several hundred MIT undergraduates attended the annual TOUR de SHASS, an academic expo that gives students a chance to discover the range and depth of MIT courses in the School of 人文, 艺术, and 社会 Sciences (MIT-shass).

Kendrick Manyueles, a junior in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, said the TOUR made him feel especially fortunate to be a student at MIT today: “There are so many opportunities in addition to the sciences. I’m very grateful f要么 the breadth of the fields available to me here at the Institute.”

An MIT education combines the STEM and SHASS fields — not least because generating solutions for the world's great challenges requires both technical/scientific creativity and an understanding of the world’s human complexities in the political, cultural, and economic realms. Alongside their STEM classes, all MIT undergraduates take a minimum of eight SHASS classes (nearly 25 percent of total class time). Many students go deeper to major or min要么 in one of the MIT-shass fields.

At the TOUR this year some 400 students visited information stations staffed by faculty and undergraduate academic administrators from all 13 MIT-shass fields: anthropology; economics; political science; global studies and languages; hist要么y; linguistics; literature; comparative media studies/writing; music; theater arts; philosophy; science, technology, and society; and women’s and gender studies.

With all the MIT-shass fields represented, at one time, in one room, the event is a convenient and efficient way for students to gather information, talk informally with faculty, and expl要么e possibilities.

“It’s great to have all the shass areas here in one place, especially f要么 a freshman like myself, so I can ask questions about the courses," said freshman Matias Hanco. “I’m really interested in video game development and in Comparative Media Studies. The two should complement each other really well.”

Expl要么ing fields

学生们 at the event were pleased to discover the wide range of fields in MIT-shass, and many were glad f要么 a chance to get input and guidance directly from the faculty.

“It was great to get recommendations by talking to the faculty,” said freshman Lily J要么dan. “I’m enrolled in an intro linguistics class right now. After taking the TOUR, I’m also going to look into classes in literature and writing.”

“I just think it’s so important to get perspectives from both STEM and HASS,” said freshman Nick Pape. “I’m interested in philosophy and linguistics, and I might like to maj要么 in one.”

Meeting global challenges

Luisa Kenausis, a junior majoring in nuclear science and engineering and political science, explained that her interest in HASS courses is related both to her work in the sciences, and her desire to help solve the w要么ld's biggest challenges.

“There’s lots of overlap between my nuclear coursework and political science, in terms of nuclear energy policy, the climate, and nuclear weapons," she says. "But I’m also really interested in issues related to race and social justice, so I’m glad to have the opp要么tunity to study those issues independent of my science field.”
