The Carnegie Mellon education begins with a broad introduction to the liberal arts and sciences during the first semesters, a focus on major core classes in the middle semesters, and deepening and broadening of scope in the last semesters through advanced electives. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar uses this approach in five undergraduate disciplines.
