The Program in Media Arts & Sciences at the MIT Media Lab

The Media Lab is a community of designers, researchers, and inventors who work together as members of research teams, doing things that conventional wisdom says can’t or shouldn’t be done. The approximately 400 projects underway at the Lab are as varied as the students who conduct them: from tools for learning and expression, to innovative devices for human adaptation and augmentation, to new modes of transportation for tomorrow’s smart cities.

Students come to the Media Lab through the Program in Media Arts and Sciences (MAS), based within MIT’s School of Architecture + Planning. Each year, the program accepts approximately 50 master’s and PhD candidates with backgrounds ranging from computer science to psychology, architecture to neuroscience, mechanical engineering to material science, and more.

MAS offers approximately 30 graduate courses and several undergraduate subjects. Media Lab courses explore several themes, including, for example, human-computer interaction, communications, learning, design, and entrepreneurship.

MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, an interdisciplinary initiative investigating the interface between computer science and physical science, also admits students through the Program in Media Arts and Sciences. The Center is known for its global network of digital fabrication facilities.

Finally, resources for the Media Lab only are here.

Information for Applicants

When applying, Media Arts and Sciences (MAS) applicants can indicate whether they are interested in a master’s or doctoral degree. Regardless of degree indicated, all MAS students begin at the master’s level. 

Media Arts and Sciences (MAS) students are fully funded (tuition, medical insurance, and stipend).

All application materials, including recommendation letters and portfolios, are required to be submitted electronically using the online application system. A complete application includes the following: 

  • Statement of objectives, including a link to online portfolio if required.  Learn more about portfolio requirements.
  • Transcripts from previously attended universities. Please upload unofficial transcripts—official transcripts are not required.
  • Three recommendation letters.
  • List up to three faculty members/research groups  with whom you’d like to work. Include this information in the “areas of research or interdisciplinary program” field, and list faculty names at the beginning of your statement of objectives.
  • GREs are not required.
  • More information on the IELTS/TOEFL requirement is available on the International Students page.

We know that innovation is fostered through diversity. As such, students from underrepresented groups (women, minorities, first-generation students, and the intersections thereof) are encouraged to apply. Learn more about our diversity and community efforts
