Harvey Mudd College, the nation’s top liberal arts college of engineering, science and mathematics, was chartered in December 1955.
Mudd offers nine engineering, science and mathematics-based majors, all grounded in a solid core curriculum that includes a healthy dose of humanities and social science courses. Why? Because we know that you don’t have to sacrifice your interest in music or art (or anything else) to be good scientists.
Harvey Mudd faculty conduct cutting-edge research spanning biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics and interdisciplinary fields such as computational biology and bioengineering.
Students work alongside faculty as colleagues, investigating open-ended questions, producing world-class research, presenting findings at national conferences and co-publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals. Faculty are regularly awarded prestigious research grants from the NSF and other foundations to advance scientific knowledge.
