Graduate Program Coordinator
The School of Design at Carnegie Mellon is among the oldest and most respected programs in North America. We have a rich history in the design of products and communications, a new track that focuses on design for environments, and we were one of the first programs to offer a master’s degree in interaction design. Our programs enroll approximately 250 undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds, inspired by a wide range of motivations and career ambitions. Ours is one of the only leading design programs to offer degrees at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels within a top-ranked multidisciplinary research university.
We are now seeking a Graduate Program Coordinator to join our team. In this role, you will provide administrative support for the masters and doctoral programs in the School of Design, to ensure efficient and effective operations and a positive student experience. You will support three masters programs and one PhD program. Masters programs consist of the Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Professional Studies (MPS), both one-year degrees; and the Master of Design (MDES), a two-year program culminating in a thesis project. The doctoral program consists of a four-year PhD culminating in a dissertation. There are approximately 45-50 students across the three masters' programs, and 15-20 PhD students in the School. You will report to the Head of the School of Design and work in close collaboration with the Director of Graduate Studies and the Director of Doctoral Studies.
