Claremont McKenna College
Claremont McKenna College, one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges, prepares students to make a difference. We are a liberal arts college that emphasizes economics and political science, effective undergraduate teaching, a close student-teacher relationship that fosters critical inquiry, an active residential and intellectual environment that promotes responsible citizenship, and a program of research institutes and scholarly support that makes possible a faculty of teacher-scholars. The College attracts a student body that is broadly diverse and accomplished beyond the classroom. We are a member of The Claremont College Consortium so students get the best of both worlds: the intimacy of a small residential college with small classes and a student-faculty ratio of nine to one, and the shared resources of a larger research university. We have a strong emphasis on practical and hands-on learning. Research, fellowships, internships are robust at CMC. We are also a lively, and tight knit community with 97% of our student body living on campus.
