Carnegie Mellon University

Ph.D. Program

Doctoral graduates and faculty at the Tepper School share an impressive legacy of path-breaking research and global recognition that includes nine Nobel laureates. 

As a small, serious-minded program, our Ph.D. students benefit from close working relationships (both academic and social) with faculty, advisors, and classmates. There are eight focused fields of study in our doctoral program and we also offer joint Ph.D. degrees in conjunction with other world-class colleges across the university campus.
