MIT Courses


D-Lab challenges talented students to use their math, science, engineering, social science, and business skills to tackle a broad range of global poverty issues.

Many D-Lab courses are cross-listed with academic departments and provide credit toward minor and major courses of study; some courses meet HASS or Institute Lab requirements. 

Students participating in D-Lab Study Abroad in Spring 2015 will be working with community partner Avani in northern India (applications now closed). Applications for the Spring 2016 semester will be available April 2015.
