Majors & Sequences


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 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.
