Visits for Prospective Students

All prospective students are strongly encouraged to visit the School of Design. A visit is an excellent opportunity for prospective students to better understand what they can expect from the programs, and to decide whether the School of Design is a good fit for their academic and career goals.

Our Visitors Day allows you to spend a full day immersed in our programs, and is designed to reflect "a day in the life" of a masters student at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design.

We welcome visitors to our graduate programs twice during the academic year, once in the fall and once in the spring.  During the 2016/2017 academic year, our Visitors Days are Monday, November 7, 2016 and Monday, March 27, 2017.

The March 27 Visitors Day includes:

  • A graduate seminar course
  • Lunch and conversation with current graduate students
  • A graduate studio course

Please contact Anita Kulina Smith, Graduate Program Coordinator, at to reserve your place.
