BXA Intercollege Degree Programs
At Carnegie Mellon, you’ll find creativity woven into the curriculum of every program. But nowhere is this truer than the BXA programs, which combine different academic areas with the arts in inventive, visionary ways. Each program’s focus is unique, but any of them will give you the creative, technical, academic and practical skills you need to innovate across disciplines in ways that are all your own.
First Year Experience
Meld the academic with the artistic as you create new knowledge and challenge definitions. In your first year, you’ll begin coursework in both colleges as you take BXA-specific courses to help you successfully fuse your chosen disciplines.
