麻省理工學院的寫作與人文研究課程讓學生有機會學習數種寫作方式的技巧、形式和傳統;從最基本的說明文到較為複雜的論說文、小說和詩歌、科學寫作、科學和技術溝通以及數位媒體等等。我們的師資包括了小說家、散文家、詩人、翻譯家、傳記作者、歷史學家、工程師和科學家。

本系列的課程分為四個領域:說明文、修辭和創意寫作、科學寫作和科技溝通。在每個領域中,入門的課程之後會接續著更專精的課程。入門課程是專門為那些寫作經驗不多的學生所規劃的。進階課程則是給那些已經掌握了句子和段落特性的學生們參與。幾門較為進階的課程用寫作當作載體來探究眾多文化中人文和科學的議題。

科學寫作的課程規劃是十二個月的研習,可以獲得碩士學位。這是提供給那些希望能夠撰寫科學與科技文章給一般讀者的學生所研習的,這個課程規劃集中在兩個學期內,有密集的進階科學寫作研討課程。這和麻省理工學院其它的計畫和科系又有合作:像是奈特科學報導計畫、科技與社會;因此我們可以提供給不同背景的學生在科技寫作研習的豐富資源。

The MIT Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies gives students the opportunity to learn the techniques, forms, and traditions of several kinds of writing, from basic expository prose to more advanced forms of non-fictional prose, fiction and poetry, science writing, scientific and technical communication and digital media. Our faculty consists of novelists, essayists, poets, translators, biographers, historians, engineers, and scientists.

Program subjects are arranged by four areas: exposition and rhetoric, creative writing, science writing, and technical communication. In each area, introductory subjects lead to more specialized advanced subjects. Introductory subjects are designed for students with little experience in writing. Advanced subjects are for students who have mastered the elements of sentence and paragraph structure. A number of the advanced subjects use writing as a vehicle to explore humanistic and scientific issues in a broad cultural context.

The Graduate Program in Science Writing is a 12-month course of study leading to a Master of Science degree. Aimed at students who wish to write about science and technology for general readers, the program is built around an intensive two-semester advanced science-writing seminar. Links to other MIT programs and departments - such as the Knight Science Journalism Fellowships program, Comparative Media Studies, and the Program in Science, Technology and Society - provide rich resources for students who come to the Graduate Program in Science Writing from a variety of backgrounds.
