BACHELORS OF SCIENCE
Our undergraduate majors and minors teach students how to think critically about the world as it is while preparing them to influence what it might become, whether in government, politics, or the private sector.
Bettering the world requires understanding it, and understanding it requires a blend of the study of great-power competition and the twenty-first-century threats, terror, cyber, and otherwise, facing the world. With three majors, six minors, and the opportunity to gain real-world experience in Washington, D.C., Carnegie Mellon Institute for Strategy & Technology (CMIST) graduates are prepared to shape the world through their work in government, politics, or the private sector.
The Carnegie Mellon University Washington Semester Program (CMU/WSP), sponsored by the Carnegie Mellon Institute for Strategy & Technology (CMIST), is a semester-long program in which students live, intern, and take CMU classes in Washington, DC. Full-time undergraduates from any course of study at the university may participate in the program. Students earn forty-eight units for the Carnegie Mellon University Washington Semester Program, interning about twenty-four hours per week in any sector or field of interest within Washington, DC, while taking classes taught by Carnegie Mellon faculty.
