2011-2012 Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Programs of Study


The courses in this catalog are organized by academic fields and programs. Claremont McKenna College offers majors, sequences, courses, or programs in the fields listed below. For most of the majors CMC offers all required courses, although students may and often are encouraged to take courses at the other Claremont Colleges. For some majors, CMC has joint or cooperative agreements with one or more of the other Claremont Colleges and through these programs students take courses in the major at both CMC and other Claremont Colleges. CMC students may also select a major not offered at CMC but at one of the other Claremont Colleges. Off-campus majors include anthropology, art and art history, Asian, German, Italian, and Russian language and literature, European studies, geology, Latin American studies, and sociology. Details on off-campus majors, programs, and courses may be found at the websites or in the catalogs of these colleges.

Course numbers are designated by field and number: 1-199 are undergraduate courses; 300 and up are graduate courses. The prefix “X” designates interfield courses and the CMC senior thesis. The suffix “A” or “B” designates a two-semester sequence; the suffix “L” designates a laboratory course; the suffix “CG”, “HM”, “PZ”, “PO”, or “SC” designates a Claremont Graduate University, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, or Scripps College course. The suffix “AA,” “AF,” and “CH” designates a course offered by the Intercollegiate Programs of Asian American Studies, Africana Studies, or Chicano Studies, and the suffix “JS” refers to courses offered by the Joint Science Department. The suffix “JP” refers to physical education courses offered by the Joint PE program; “JM” denotes Joint Music course offerings. And finally the suffix “JT” is used for courses taught by faculty members from more than one institution. Other letters may be added to course numbers to identify additional courses. The graduate courses of the Robert Day School for the Master of Finance degree are listed at the 300 and 400 level.

All courses listed in the catalog are scheduled to be offered as indicated, but the schedule of courses is tentative and subject to change as new courses are approved or offerings are changed. Courses listed as offered “occasionally” will be offered regularly but not on a predetermined rotation. Further information on course offerings is available from the department or program chair.
