Information For  International Students

An International Commitment to Education

Carnegie Mellon's dedication to educating students around the globe is illustrated with 20 percent of students from outside the United States and with alumni located world-wide. Rooted in the belief that diversity leads to innovation, Carnegie Mellon provides a solid support structure to international students in Pittsburgh and at our international locations.

Here in Pittsburgh, our Office of International Education facilitates the experience for new students and promotes intercultural events across campus. And through credit and non-credit classes, workshops and appointments, Carnegie Mellon's Intercultural Communication Center provides non-native English speakers with the resources needed to succeed.

Events like the annual International Festival also give students the opportunity to celebrate their cultures while exploring others. With a range of religious and ethnic student organizations, students also have the chance to connect with their peers and form new friendships away from home.  


Student Facilities

Work: Where We Make It ...
The School of Art occupies the upper floors of the College of Fine Arts (CFA) and the lower floors of Doherty Hall, two buildings that blend the grandeur and charm of original Henry Hornbostel architecture with state-of-the art facilities and spaces in which to make, live and breathe art. Students have 24-hour access to excellent digital facilities, new and improved printmaking and sculpture shops, and light-filled painting and drawing studios.
And Where We Display it ...
Works made in these studios don't languish there. They appear in a variety of campus venues. The spacious Regina Gouger Millery Gallery presents both MFA and BFA exhibits each spring and also shows the work of faculty, alumni and other internationally recognized artists. Exhibits rotate weekly in the halls and foyers of CFA, the Ellis Gallery and the FRAME gallery, which is managed entirely by art students. Frequently, students present exhibits and projects off-campus, as well, combining vision with action as both artists and citizens, always contributing to the vitality of our culture.
