The Leadership Studies Program is a multi-disciplinary program focusing on the nature of leadership and followership. It addresses the scientific, philosophical, and literary approaches to the relationship between leaders and followers in political, business, and other settings.
The Leadership Studies Program and the Leadership Sequence are designed for students interested in pursuing a career involving the scholarly study and practice of leadership, who feel that an understanding of leadership would be helpful to them in another career, or who have a casual interest in the subject.
Completion of the sequence will be noted on students' transcript.
The intercollegiate and interdisciplinary Program in Legal Studies seeks to illuminate law from a liberal arts perspective, with ideas and methods from disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. It is also intended to help unify and increase the student's appreciation of these other disciplines by using them to study law as a central social phenomenon and repository of values. A premise of the Program in Legal Studies is that law, when approached from a liberal arts perspective, reveals a collection of magnificent intellectual and social structures that are too important - and too interesting - to be left entirely to professionals.
The Program in Legal Studies is completed as part of a dual major.
CMC and The Claremont Graduate University (CGU) offer psychology and neuroscience majors the opportunity to obtain an accelerated MA degree in psychology from CGU one year after receiving the Bachelor of Arts degree from CMC. Under this program, CGU will grant up to 16 units of graduate credit (four courses) for advanced undergraduate courses taken while the student is an undergraduate at CMC. In addition to these courses, in their senior year program participants must take two graduate courses (eight units) at CGU, including a core course and a four unit course in either statistics or methodology. After entering CGU, program participants must complete at least 32 units (eight courses) for the MA degree.
Students must formally apply to and be admitted into the School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences at CGU. Applicants must be majors or dual majors in psychology or neuroscience, who will complete a one-year empirical research senior thesis in one of those fields during the senior year.
Students interested in the accelerated MA program in psychology are encouraged to apply no later than the spring semester of the junior year. The application can be completed online at: http://www.applyweb.com. Students should make sure to note that they are from one of the undergraduate Claremont Colleges and request a fee waiver. The GRE is required. For further information, contact Paul Thomas, Program Coordinator of the School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences at Claremont Graduate University.
All CMC students are encouraged to consider applying for study abroad during their junior year. Psychology majors are encouraged to take advantage of CMC’s study abroad programs but need to consider the following:
