Campus Visit

We do not require applicants to visit Carnegie Mellon and the Department of History, and, in general, plan visits for students who have been admitted to the program. Campus visits can, however, be arranged for students before admission if they so desire after they have made contact via email with relevant faculty and discussed their research interests. Please contact Tim Ruff (, the Graduate Coordinator, indicating your wish to visit as far in advance as possible so that he can coordinate your dates with the availability of the faculty and the Graduate Director.

You can find accurate information on travel to Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon, as well as a campus map, on Carnegie Mellon's Home Page. The Department of History is located in Baker Hall 240.
