Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences

The Marianna Brown Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University is no ordinary liberal arts school.

Dietrich College students publish poetry and analyze brain scans. They teach elementary school students to speak Spanish and create computer tutors that teach algebra. They study how films shape our culture and learn about the impact that pollution has had on the history of American cities.

Dietrich College students study under some of the world's leading scholars in fields that were pioneered at Carnegie Mellon, such as decision science, technical writing, history and policy, and cognitive neuroscience. And Dietrich College provides for all Carnegie Mellon students what the New York Times has called "the most creative general education program of any American university."
