Global media, digital humanities, games, electronic literature…such variety is determined not only by what faculty and students offer but also through the establishment of strategic partnerships with donors and organizations.

Undergraduates regularly have the chance to work with our research groups, through MIT’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program.
