Carnegie Mellon University

Student Experience

The Department of English not only offers a unique and rigorous interdisciplinary education - we provide a second home to many of our students here at CMU. The English student experience includes:

  • Small, workshop-style writing classes
  • Low faculty-to-student ratio 
  • Opportunities for writing, editing, and publishing outside of the classroom
  • Connections with a community of humanities peers
  • A welcoming student hangout space in Baker Hall ("The Glad")
  • Our regular lineup of student readings and expert visiting speakers 
  • Personalized advising and faculty mentorship
