Residential program

The Claremont Colleges include Claremont Graduate University with five prestigious, contiguous undergraduate colleges (Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps) and the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences. Academic collaboration is highly valued. Cross-registration is free, and the members share libraries, health care, security, and other facilities.

The School of Arts & Humanities lets you tailor your program to target your specific interests. Working alongside our extraordinary faculty, you’ll conduct research in and across disciplines to approach problems in new ways. Extensive curricular offerings train you in theory and practice, all in an intimate, collegial learning environment where faculty-mentors offer you personal attention, and opportunities for collaborative, interdisciplinary scholarship abound.

Claremont Graduate University is home the Kingsley & Kate Tufts Poetry Awards, annual prizes of $100,000 and $10,000 given for outstanding volumes of poetry published in the preceding year. The Kingsley Tufts poet returns to campus for a week-in-residence at CGU in fall, offering readings, workshops, and opportunities for interaction with graduate students on and off campus.
