School of Science Academic Programs
The School of Science offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in each of the six Departments in the School. The School offers frontier research and educational programs in virtually all areas of contemporary science. Students at all levels are involved in exciting cutting edge research with our faculty and research staff. Our faculty and students continually mandate new academic and research directions for the School. From quarks and gluons to the large scale structure of the universe, from individual neurons to the complex processes involved in language acquisition, from the mathematics of computer science to the fundamental concepts of logic, from the basic chemistry of copper and oxygen to the biochemical processes involved in Alzheimer’s disease … if it matters to the world, it’s being explored and re-defined in the MIT School of Science.
