Why Carnegie Mellon for Science?
Freedom to explore more than one field
While working in the lab of neuroscientist Alison Barth (right), Carnegie Mellon alumna and artist Joana Ricou was inspired by fluorescent images of nerve cells within the mouse brain. One of Ricou’s interpretive paintings became cover art for an issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
At the Mellon College of Science, there are no boundaries. Interested in science but also fascinated by business, art, the humanities or computer science? Carnegie Mellon is a full service university with many colleges, so you can take courses outside MCS and across the university to explore whatever interests you. MCS also has a flexible approach to general education, which gives you more choices for meeting your requirements.
