Major Mondays: Joint Chemistry and Biology

An interview with Celine Wang, senior joint Chemistry and Biology major. How did you pick your major? I came into Mudd knowing that I wanted to do some sort of chemistry. I was really into chemistry and biology coming out of high school and so, for the most part, I was debating between chemistry and […]

Major Mondays: Mathematical and Computational Biology

An interview with Tona Gonzales, senior Mathematical and Computational Biology major. How did you pick your major? Coming into Mudd I was already really into math. And then, also in high school, I kind of got into computational biology. I was always this math kid, then I discovered comp-bio, and then the MCB major seemed […]

Major Monday: Engineering

An interview with Udeema Shakya, senior engineering major! How did you pick your major? I came into Mudd wanting to be an engineering major. I did debate between engineering and computer science initially, but I decided on engineering partially because I liked E79 (Core engineering class) and I enjoy just having more hands-on things to […]

Major Mondays: Physics

An interview with Chloe Taylor, senior physics major! How did you pick your major? I really liked all of the physics classes I took in the core and also the professors I had. And then, the summer after my freshman year I did research with a physics professor, Prof Eckert, and I really enjoyed that. […]

An interview with Savanah Diaz, senior joint Math-Physics major! How did you pick your major? I actually came to the Mudd thinking I wanted to do the Joint Chem-Bio major, but I took advantage of the Core by paying attention to each course in every field. I realized that I really enjoyed my math and […]

Major Mondays: Mathematics

An interview with Madelyn Anderson, senior Math major! How did you pick your major? I already knew going into Mudd that I wanted to do some sort of math related thing. I originally declared IPS (Individual Program of Study) sophomore year. I didn’t like the Joint Math- Computer Science major. I wanted to do stats, […]

An interview with Jenny Lee, senior biology major! How did you pick your major? I was always kind of interested in biology. But one of the main reasons why I came to Mudd was because I felt like I hadn’t had a really in depth view into the different STEM fields that were available to […]

Major Mondays: Joint Mathematics and Computer Science

An interview with Skylar Litz, class of 2022 and a Joint Mathematics-Computer Science major. How did you pick your major? I really liked the practical aspects of CS (computer science), being able to actually solve problems using a computer, but I also really liked the more theoretical parts of CS like algorithms and proof making. […]

Major Mondays: Chemistry

An interview with Emily Fok ’22, Chemistry major. How did you pick your major? I was actually deciding between chemistry and engineering when I was a freshman. Obviously, there’s no chemical engineering major at Mudd, but I heard you could either do chemistry and take engineering courses on the side, or you could do the […]

Major Mondays: Computer Science

An interview with Henley Sartin ’22, Computer Science major. How did you pick your major? So, I picked my major because I really liked CS5(Mudd’s Intro to CS Course)Then I took through CS70 and I kind of just fell in love with it and that kind of solidified my decision. I really enjoyed pair programming […]
