Graduate Students

Though most graduate student life in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences is centered in the academic departments, the graduate program coordinators collaborate to enrich the graduate student experience across the whole college.

Dietrich’s Graduate Program Coordinators

Networking within Dietrich and at CMU

Monthly social events for all Dietrich Graduate Students, with each month hosted by a different department.  Check with your department’s graduate coordinator if you want to help plan the event your department is hosting.

Graduate Student Social

The psychology department will be hosting a family-friendly pumpkin carving/painting event on Friday, October 22 at 5:00pm at the Merson Courtyard outside of the CUC, next to ENTROPY.

Come to enjoy cider, snacks, Halloween candy and more! Two tickets to Kennywood will be awarded to the winner of the Best Decorated Pumpkin Contest.
