Published each August, the MIT Bulletin, also known as the Course Catalog, provides a comprehensive description of the Institute’s academic programs and policies.

Academic policies and information about programs of study are current as of August 1, 2017. Subject and faculty information is updated throughout the year as information is received. Subject descriptions and schedules by term are available on the Registrar’s Office website.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology reserves the right to change the course information, regulations, and policies published in the MIT Bulletin.
