Visiting HASTS

Prospective Student Visit Day

Prospective applicants who would like to visit the program are encourged to attend the HASTS Prospective Student Visit Day, which will take place in October or November 2014. If you would like to be notified when the date is set, please send a request to hasts@mit.edu.

Other Visits

If prospective applicants are unable to attend the Visit Day, they may be able to make arrangements to visit the program by requesting to meet with the HASTS Director of Graduate Studies, the Academic Administrator and/or faculty members whose area of research is of interest to them.

These visits are not required for admission; they are available to those who want to get a sense if our program is a good match for their academic and research interests. Visits are only scheduled between May 1 and December 15 each year. During the admissions cycle (January - April), applicants who are selected to advance to the second round of the admissions process will be invited to campus interview in February or March.

To request a visit, submit the one-page Prospective Student Questionnaire to the HASTS Academic Administrator (at hasts@mit.edu) and include the names of the faculty members with whom you would like to meet and when you are available to visit. Applicants should keep in mind that faculty have full schedules, so not all requests can be accomodated and meetings need to be scheduled before making travel plans to visit MIT.
