Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communication

Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communication at MIT represents the core educational resource of the Institute’s Communication Requirement. WRAP collaborates on teaching written and oral communication in all Institute departments, and works with about 100 subjects and 3,700 MIT students per year.

Writing and Communication Center

The Writing and Communication Center offers several services to all members of the MIT community. They can get free individual consultation about any writing difficulty, from questions about grammar to matters of style, including difficulties common to writers, such as overcoming writer’s block, organizing papers, taking essay exams, revising one’s work, or presenting scientific information.

Personal Support and Wellness

MIT offers a variety of support for students — for stress, health, family, and much more. It never hurts to ask for help, and it’s available 24 hours a day.

MIT and the Graduate Student Council also offer graduate student peer support through the iREFS program (Institute-wide Resources for Easing Friction and Stress). iREFS members “serve as resources to their peers across the Institute, regardless of departmental affiliation. They come from a variety of backgrounds and are chosen for their commitment to graduate student wellness and abilities to support their fellows during times of uncertainty, stress or conflict.”
