Majors & Sequences


Majors

All undergraduate students must complete the requirements for a major to graduate. Students should select a major no later than the second semester of their sophomore year.

CMC students may complete single, dual, or double majors for their degree. It is also possible for students to devise their own major (individualized major), or to select a major not offered at CMC but part of the curriculum at one of the other Claremont Colleges (off-campus major). Students may not complete a dual and a double major for inclusion on the transcript. One course may not be counted toward more than one major requirement. No changes in majors (or sequences) can be made after the tenth day of classes of a student’s last semester at the College (usually at the end of January of the senior year) without permission of the registrar. See Major Requirements  for the full policy regarding majors and sequences.

Sequences

In addition to completing requirements for a major, students have the option to complete a sequence, which consists of a series of approved courses related to a subject or theme and offered at CMC or the other Claremont Colleges. The purpose of a sequence is to give students an opportunity to specialize in a particular area within a major, or to branch out into a topic that cuts across disciplines within the liberal arts curriculum.
