Over the past decade, Carnegie Mellon University has strengthened its standing in the humanities. The Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud to have distinguished faculty and talented students who are leading the humanities into the 21st century.

Faculty and students within the Departments of English, History, Modern Languages and Philosophy focus on teaching and learning deep intellectual knowledge as well as developing useful, practical skills. Often, they cross disciplines to solve real world problems. For example, philosophers are working to improve medical ethics practices and food marketing tactics geared towards children; historians are developing policy recommendations for forensic DNA profiling and drug policy; and, an English professor created a social networking tool to improve education, and it is now being used by tens of thousands of students all over the world.
