Few important engineering decisions are purely technical. In our globally interconnected world, professionals must be able to integrate social, cultural, political, economic, ethical and environmental knowledge into their decisions and designs.
Academic work in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences provides you with an understanding of these contexts, enhances your abilities to communicate well, gives you the foundations to transcend traditional technical boundaries, establishes your competitive edge in the professional marketplace and prepares you to be a leader and a lifelong learner.
HASS faculty are recognized nationally and around the world as scholars and teachers who expect high levels of academic performance from their students. Their expertise includes:
Film and media studies
Science, technology and engineering
In 2024, the year of our 150th anniversary, we will celebrate Colorado School of Mines’ past, present and possibilities. By celebrating and supporting the Campaign for MINES@150 you will help elevate Mines to be an accessible, top-of-mind and first-choice for students, faculty, staff, recruiters and other external partners. When you give, you are ensuring Mines becomes even more distinctive and highly sought-after by future students, alumni, industry, and government partners over the next 150 years. We look forward to celebrating Mines’ sesquicentennial with you and recognizing the key role you play in making the MINES@150 vision a reality through your investments of time, talent and treasure.
