College Senior

Majors: MIT only has a general admission. There aren't any programs.

Majors: The professors are some of the best in the world, and the kid sitting next to you might just be the next Bill Gates.

Majors: There are plenty of research opportunities as undergraduates via UROP, either as paid research or for-credit research. You can apply for any such opportunity in any department, so long as you're qualified. I did research at a cognitive science lab, with the linguistics department, and with a group at the MIT Media Lab.

Majors: At MIT, we refer to our majors by their course numbers (and subnumbers/letters, when applicable). I was a linguistics major in the Linguistics and Philosophy department, so I was Course 24-2. Our program rocks 'cause MIT, unbeknownst to many, is one of the best institutions for theoretical linguistics. (We have the grandfather of modern linguistics, Noam Chomsky, and many other fine linguists such as David Pesetsky, Irene Heim, Martin Hackl, Norvin Richards, and Kenneth Wexler, just to name a few). Unfortunately, the program is very small (as is the graduate program) and does not get as much attention as it should, both from the students and the faculty. The graduate program is extremely renowned and highly competitive. But, back to the undergraduate program, yes, it is small. In fact, my graduating class probably only had around 5-7 (out of a class of around 1000) doing linguistics (or philosophy, both are in the same department) as their primary major. As such, I went through classes without meeting some of these kids. And contrary to the norm at MIT, which is built on collaboration, I'd often have to do my psets (problem sets = homework) alone since very few people were taking my classes.

5 College Freshman

Majors: As a freshman, I am not in a specific major. I will declare in April
