A private, global research university, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) stands among the world’s most renowned educational institutions. Nearly 16,800 undergraduate and graduate students in the university’s seven schools and colleges benefit from a small student-to-faculty ratio and an education characterized by its focus on solving real-world problems, interdisciplinary collaboration, and innovation. Founded in 1905, the College of Fine Arts was one of the first comprehensive arts teaching institutions in the United States. The CFA has since soared to national and international leadership in architecture, art, design, drama, and music. The college currently enrolls 1,400 students in its five schools and the BXA intercollege degree programs.
