Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
UROP projects are research-based intellectual collaborations of MIT faculty and undergraduates. Undergraduates may participate in each phase of research activity: developing a research plan, proposal-writing, conducting research, analyzing data, and presenting results in oral and written form.
Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS)
Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program, providing an academic framework and broad-based community for scholarly inquiry focusing on women, gender, and sexuality. Exploring gender with the tools of different, and often multiple, disciplines, Women's Studies subjects strive to help MIT students better understand how knowledge and value take different forms depending on a variety of social variables. In the course of their inquiry, students not only learn how to use gender as a category of analysis, but also reflect on the manifestation of gender in their own lives, leading to a range of personal and intellectual discoveries. Although gender is a central component of every subject, the study of gender requires attention to connections between gender, sexuality, race, class, religion, nationality, and other social categories; different subjects shed light on different aspects of such connections.
