Carnegie Mellon University

Undergraduate Student Research

The broad analytic, research, and writing skills cultivated by the majors in SPH and Global Studies prepare students for success in a wide variety of graduate and professional schools, and for exercising leadership in careers in business, law, government, education, journalism, public policy, social work, the armed services, Foreign Service, media, museums and libraries. All majors take a capstone research seminar, where they conduct individualized research projects using archival and other primary sources with one-on-one guidance and supervision from faculty. Students are encouraged to consider expanding their research projects either through receiving funding for summer research or through the Dietrich College's Senior Honors Program.
