A hallmark of a Carnegie Mellon education since the mid 1940’s has been a focus on applying fundamental knowledge to the solution of practical problems. Known as the “Carnegie Plan,” this approach requires students to study and appreciate academic disciplines outside of their major program of study.

These general education courses complement what students are learning in their majors and provide them with the opportunity to pursue special areas of interests. Details
