Where Our Students Go

The intellectual environment at Mudd is outstanding. As a student, you will be sharpened by interactions with all the other students of high technical ability. We have about 25-30 math majors per graduating class, which for a school our size is quite remarkable. We thought you might like to see actual lists of what our students have done when they graduate, as well as fellowships they were offered (indicated by text like this).

These are complete lists of our graduates (including joint majors) from the last several years.
