In the 1950s Mudd, an accomplished mining engineer, wanted to overcome many of the shortcomings of traditional, narrow technical training of his day. Mudd, and his successors who helped establish the college, delivered on his vision in a big way. We're one of the premier math, science and engineering colleges in the nation. We're also unique because we are a liberal arts college. We educate engineers, scientists and mathematicians who become leaders in their fields and have a clear understanding of the impact their work has on society. Mudd offers nine math, science, and engineering-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 to be good scientists. And because an understanding of history and politics will make us more effective engineers, chemists, lawyers, doctors and human beings.
