Design students talking in the grad studio

Carnegie Mellon provides options for people to learn about the university and our offerings. You can read about them and sign up for events online at:

While we love visitors in the School of Design, we do not encourage drop-in visits—even for regularly scheduled campus tours. Our staff and faculty maintain full calendars. Therefore it's far more likely that we can answer your questions fully if you email the Graduate Program Coordinator. With advanced notice we can confirm availability and coordinate a classroom visit, if our schedules permit.

We also invite you to join us for a virtual visit. A virtual visit to the School of Design is a great opportunity to meet members of our community and talk to current students, which can help you determine whether the program is a good fit for your academic and career goals.

Registration for Virtual Visits will resume in October.

We invite prospective doctoral students to contact the Graduate Program Coordinator to inquire about the availability of attending a virtual information session with the Director of the PhD in Transition Design, Jonathan Chapman.
