The Minor in Applied International Studies is designed to help students integrate a practical, applied international experience into a coherent course of study.
Created in partnership with Tsinghua University, this course brings students to Beijing, where they work in teams to create a plan for architecture, city design, and implementation of an urban project.
Through courses with MIT's Development Lab (D-Lab), students learn about a broad range of global poverty issues and work on projects to address those problems.
MIT offers courses in more than 10 world languages and cultures.

D-Lab works to foster innovation in the developing world through classes, field trips, projects, and on-the-ground collaborations.
In this program for freshmen, students work in teams to develop and propose solutions to a complex global problem.
An architectural design workshop held in Italy, the Veneto Experience develops students' skills through onsite fieldwork in and around Venice.
