Carnegie Mellon University

Letter from the Dean

Thank you for your interest in the College of Fine Arts (CFA) at Carnegie Mellon. I hope that, through this portal site, you will discover all that CFA has to offer you through our five schools, academic programs and related resources: Architecture, Art, Design, Drama, Music, the BXA Intercollege Degree Programs, Arts & Entertainment Management through the Heinz College, Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and Miller Institute for Contemporary Art.

By navigating this site, you can go directly to the school or program about which you want more information. Or, you can easily find information about our degree programs, taking you directly to an overview that will help you determine where your interests truly lie.

Overall, you'll learn more about our top-ranked academic programs and research centers. I think you will quickly see why we attract the best and brightest students here at CMU.

We educate the world's next generation of brilliant and transformational artists, designers, actors, musicians, architects and scholars — all of whom leave our schools prepared to headline the future. I hope you'll join the long list of successful alumni who have come before you.

If I can help you on your journey, don't hesitate to contact me or anyone in the Dean's Office.

My best regards,
Dan J. Martin
Stanley & Marcia Gumberg Dean, College of Fine Arts
