Common Threads: The Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at MIT

Part of the "Common Threads" video, produced for the MIT 150th celebration, this clip features the vital role of humanities, arts, and social sciences at MIT. The roots of MIT's strengths in the humanities, arts, and social sciences go back to its founding days, and by mid 20th century, the Institute had created a dedicated School for these disciplines. Today, MIT SHASS is home to research that has a global impact, and to superb graduate programs, all recognized as among the finest in the world. The School's mission also includes a core part of an MIT education: the School's faculty help all undergraduates gain a range of critical skills and cultural/historical perspectives that enable MIT graduates to serve as leaders—at home and around the globe.
