CMC students interested in graduate economics training for business, government or non-profit enterprise are encouraged to consider the accelerated BA/MA program in economics at Claremont Graduate University (CGU). Participants in this program enroll, with the permission of the program advisor and the CGU instructor, in graduate courses as part of their undergraduate education. Program participants may count four CGU graduate economics courses completed while at CMC towards both the CMC Bachelor of Arts degree and the CGU Master of Arts degree. After receiving the CMC degree, students enroll at CGU for two additional semesters, and complete another eight graduate courses for the MA degree.
Interested students should meet with their CMC advisor and CGU economics faculty member during their junior year to map out a program of study and prepare their application to CGU. Applications and degree requirements information are available from the Claremont Graduate University.
