The Harvey Mudd College Mission: To educate engineers, scientists, and mathematicians well versed in all of these areas and in the humanities and the social sciences so that they may assume leadership in their fields with a clear understanding of the impact of their work on society. HMC offers extraordinary opportunities for high level research exclusively for undergraduate students in a collaborative and rigorous environment. As one of the Claremont Colleges, our students also draw on the resources of Pomona, Scripps, Claremont McKenna and Pitzer Colleges. HMC graduates are among the most sought after by both graduate schools and employers.
