Avoid the Lopsided. Harvey Mudd College puts its students through two years of required courses before letting them choose a major from four technical fields: physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering science. Whenever possible, liberal arts courses are keyed to the sciences. Students learn, for instance, the sort of culture England had when Newton developed his laws of motion.


I want to take the course on history in Newton's time! Courses like that may even change my mind on the worth of the Science, Technology, and Society requirement.

Oh, man. An STS/IDS course based around Stephenson's Baroque Cycle would be awesome.

Indeed! It would have to be a 2 semester class, though.
