The Harvey Mudd curriculum integrates vigorous STEM and liberal arts courses to educate talented scientists, engineers and 数学ematicians—inspiring them to become passionate problem solvers who understand the impact of their work on society.
The curriculum has three components:
The Common Core: a Broad Foundation Across Disciplines
Our educational experience starts with the Common Core, a set of coordinated courses from every department—生物学, 化学, 计算机科学, 工程, 数学, 物理和人文, social sciences and the arts. The Core gives you a broad scientific background coupled with academic writing and critical inquiry. No matter what your future major, you will gain a solid interdisciplinary foundation.
Humanities, 社会科学 and the Arts: Know Your Impact
Harvey Mudd believes students can only understand their impact on society if they understand society. 除了核心, we require one quarter of coursework be in the Humanities, 社会科学, 和艺术(HSA). 学生 can take classes in philosophy, 政治科学, 社会学, 文学, 音乐, 摄影, media studies and many other topics. The HSA department has dynamic professors in many fields, but if you don’t find what you are interested in here, you can take courses at any of 克莱尔蒙特学院. Why do we have an HSA requirement? Because we believe technology divorced from humanity is worse than no technology at all.
The Major: Explore Your Field Through 研究 and Experiential Learning
The major builds depth and technical competence in a chosen field. 哈维马德的专业 emphasize a broad-based, interdisciplinary approach to equip our students with problem-solving skills and the ability to adapt to any challenge. Coursework comes alive with project-based experiential learning and graduate-level research opportunities. You’ll finish your major working on real-world research or design projects. Throughout the entire curriculum runs an emphasis on developing strong oral and written communications and excellent computational skills.
- 数学ematical and computational 生物学
- 计算机科学 and 数学
