Undergraduate Women By Primary Course

Compiled from MIT Registrar Data

† Freshmen do not pick a course.

* Undesignated sophomores.

For statistical purposes, every undergraduate has a ‘primary major.’ 185 students have declared a second major, half of them (94) in the School of Science (courses V, VII, VIII, IX, XII, XVIII). The Registrar’s office does not provide a gender-separated list of second majors.

Students in different degree programs with the same starting number, like VII and VII-A, are counted together.
