    Over the course of 6 weeks, students will be exposed to writing and culture through the lens of CMU’s English Department.

    PLEASE NOTE: Our program will only be offered online for summer 2021.

    Guided by the mentorship and instruction of our highly distinguished faculty members, students will improve their ability to analyze complex, ever-changing problems through astute investigations of culture and society.

    -Bring your readings and discussions in writing and culture to life by attending readings and events with local artists and authors, and experiencing productions in Pittsburgh’s world-class music and theater scene.

    -Investigate writing and culture in rich historical context, across print, visual, and film media, through hands-on visits to the Carnegie Mellon archives and Rare Book room, docent-led tours of exhibits and permanent collections at Pittsburgh’s many museums, and tours of Pittsburgh film locations.

    -Experience mentorship, rich discussion, and a workshop-like environment with distinguished, permanent faculty in Carnegie Mellon’s Department of English, who include published creative writers, program directors, literary and cultural studies scholars, and technologists at the cutting edge of digital humanities scholarship.

    -Gain access to college-level professionalization opportunities, such as networking opportunities with alumni, insights into career paths in English, and mentored help on college application essays from professors who direct Carnegie Mellon’s writing and communications programs.
