Humanities and Social Sciences
Understanding our world
Mines is not all about science and technology. Courses in the humanities and social sciences complement your technical education. You have the opportunity to learn a foreign language, study literature and history, play an instrument, discuss public affairs and study abroad.
Position yourself as a leader prepared to face economical, political and cultural issues in this increasingly interconnected world.
Understanding our economy
The economy is increasingly global and dependent on advanced technology. In such a world, private companies and public organizations need leaders and managers who understand economics and business, as well as science and technology.
Mines students rise to the top levels of industry and government. Many start their own companies by being technically proficient and business savvy.
Be prepared to work with engineers and scientists — and senior executives — around the globe.
