Academics-Mellon College of Science - Carnegie Mellon University

At the Mellon College of Science, we give our students a strong foundation in the sciences and the freedom to shape their own degree program.

Students in MCS can tailor their education to fit their distinctive goals. Interested in biology but also love to create works of art? Fascinated by mathematics and robotics? Curious about physics and music? Whatever your goals are, we’ll help you achieve them.

The Mellon College of Science offers more than 30 degree programs, tracks and minors. Our programs allow you to chart your own academic path to fit your unique interests, and we help you every step of the way. You can delve deeply into the biological sciences, chemistry, mathematical sciences or physics, and you can take advantage of the rich opportunities available at other colleges across campus.

MCS students learn by doing, becoming lifelong learners who can solve problems and adapt to the challenges of any environment. More than 70% of MCS undergraduates contribute to cutting-edge research. They explore real-world problems and discover new science.

In the lab and in the classroom, our students develop the curiosity and excitement for scientific discovery that will propel them into the future.
