Opportunities to Visit

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host an in-person visitors’ day with many people in attendance at this time. Nonetheless, we invite you to participate in a virtual visit with School of Design to meet members of our community and talk with us. A virtual visit serves as an excellent opportunity for you to learn about the School of Design in greater depth and get a sense of who we are and what we do, which can help you determine if the program is a good fit for your academic and career goals.

Please note that Carnegie Mellon offers additional online visiting opportunities as well as a self-guided walking tour. You can learn more about these activities online at: https://www.cmu.edu/visit/. While we love to greet visitors in the School of Design, at this time we do not encourage drop-in visits—even for regularly scheduled tours and sessions. Thank you for understanding.

VIRTUAL VISITORS' DAYS

We are planning to host virtual visitors’ sessions for prospective graduate students several times throughout the academic year. These dates are scheduled according to the best opportunities for you to learn about the work taking place in the School of Design and to interact with our core faculty and current students. During each session, the Director of Graduate Studies will provide attendees with an overview of our programs, the Graduate Program Coordinator will outline key points regarding our admissions process, faculty members will briefly describe their courses, and current students will explain what it is like to study in the School of Design. The sessions will also include time for questions and answers. If you have any questions about our virtual visitors' sessions, please email grad-info@design.cmu.edu

If you’d like to attend a virtual visitors’ session please complete the online survey no later than Friday, October 15. We will email you an agenda and zoom information closer to the time of the session you choose.
