The Bachelor of Humanities and Arts (BHA) Program is an intercollege degree-granting program. It is designed for students who would like to combine and blend their interests in the fine arts and humanities/social sciences rather than pursue a conventional major and degree in either the College of Fine Arts or the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences. To be considered for the BHA program, you must apply and be admitted to both CFA and DC (you must select a CFA school and DC major on the Carnegie Mellon University Common Application Supplement). This program is not open to music theatre or acting majors.

Additionally, your application must include an essay describing your interdisciplinary goals in both the fine arts and humanities/social sciences and how the BHA program would provide the opportunity and framework for you to accomplish these objectives. This essay is a central component in the selection process. The BHA essay fulfills the essay requirement on the Carnegie Mellon University Common Application Supplement. You do not need to complete another essay. If you are selected for this program, you will be notified in your admission decision letter. This program is not available under Early Decision.

In your essay:
(1) tell us about your past and present forms of recognition for academic achievement,
(2) note past and present involvement in arts-related activities and artistic achievement,
(3) note the areas(s) of the fine arts that you intend to pursue as a BHA student, and
