3 Introduction This handbook contains information about degree requirements for the Master of Arts in Arts Management and the Executive MA in Arts Management. Please read the handbook carefully and consult with the Arts Management Program Coordinator about any requirements you do not understand. This informal guide aims at answering students' frequently asked questions. It does not replace or supersede the official Bulletin of the Claremont Graduate University. Consult the CGU Bulletin for explanations of official CGU policies and procedures. You can view Bulletin online at: Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the CGU academic and grading policies available on the website of the Office of the Registrar: Contact Information Arts Management Program Burkle 112 The Ron W. Burkle Family Building 1021 N Dartmouth Avenue Claremont CA Laura Zucker Director Diana Luna Assistant Director Voice: Fax: Electronic Mail It is extremely important to have access to electronic mail. Many courses require work done by and professors distribute course information by this medium. The department office uses cgu.edu only. Faculty use extensively. It is often the only effective way for a student to reach a particular professor quickly. At CGU accounts are free to registered students. You may check your by going to from any web browser. Postal Mailing Address Important written communication may be sent to your mailing address. Be sure to give your local address and telephone number to us as soon as you have them. Please keep us informed whenever you move or change telephone numbers by updating your contact information through the Student Portal (http://my.cgu.edu). Student Mailboxes Student mailboxes are located on the main level of the Burkle Building, adjacent to the lobby. They are for internal campus mail and announcements only off-campus post and parcels are not delivered to student mailboxes and will be returned to sender. Please check your student box regularly. 3

4 Academic Advising Students are required to meet with the Director each semester for advising. Students should discuss with the Director their proposed course schedule for the following semester, including why they have selected their specific electives. When deciding upon elective courses, students need to consider how these courses advance their educational and career goals. On occasion, before the new semester begins, the Arts Management Program may encourage students to reconsider their proposed course choices. International Students International Students should work closely with the International Student Coordinator throughout their time at CGU to ensure that all I-20 and other relevant information is kept current. The International Services Office at CGU can be reached at or via at: Standards of Academic Honesty CGU states its policies on academic integrity in its Bulletin. The full statement is available here: Be aware that the academic integrity policies prohibit the multiple submission of the same work for different assignments. It is improper to submit the work done for one class or project to a second class or as a second project without first getting the informed permission of both instructors. Some instructors allow overlapping work between courses. In such cases, you must obtain the agreement of all relevant instructors. CGU s policy on plagiarism may be found here: The Writing Center Graduate-level coursework demands clear, cogent and well-reasoned writing free of common errors. Many mistakes tolerated by undergraduate instructors are not allowed by graduate faculty. Students are encouraged to avail themselves of the Writing Center to improve their writing skills. The Writing Center provides friendly, supportive, collegial and process-oriented assistance with writing and presentations to all members of the CGU community. It also assists international students with English language learning. For more information, please visit the Writing Center website: Satisfactory Academic Progress As a CGU student, you are expected to meet and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward completion of your degree program. The criteria for SAP are: GPA Requirement. You must maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in all your coursework taken at Claremont Graduate University Maximum Incompletes. You may have no more than two Incomplete (I) grades on your record at any time. The CGU policy on Incompletes may be found here: The department takes satisfactory progress into account when awarding financial support. Students should also be aware that CGU maintains a policy on satisfactory academic progress for eligibility for financial aid. For more information: 4

5 Courses When deciding upon elective courses, students need to consider how these courses advance their educational and career goals. On occasion, the Arts Management Program may encourage students to reconsider their proposed elective choices. Please note too that many CGU courses have prerequisites. You may take upper level seminars offered at the Claremont Colleges with the approval of the Program Director and the course instructor. Where to Find Courses Most CGU departments, including the Arts Management Program, provide lists of courses to be offered within their departments. Since the Arts Management degree draws from the School of Arts & Humanities and The Drucker School of Management, you will want to search for courses in both schools. Only the Executive MA in Arts Management students will also search for courses in the Executive Management listings. Before the start of each semester CGU posts a schedule of courses on the Registrar s web page: The schedule includes the day, time, location, instructor, and a description of each course. In some cases department offices also provide draft syllabi. In addition, the five colleges together (Scripps College, Pomona College, Pitzer College, Harvey Mudd College, and Claremont McKenna College) publish a comprehensive on-line schedule of courses for each new semester, with information about time, location, and instructor. This information can also be found on the Registrar s web page: It is not unusual for courses to be added after catalogues and schedules have been posted to the web. Be sure to frequent the web site regularly for an up-to-date listing of courses. Every effort will be made to communicate schedule changes via your CGU account. If you are registering for the first time, please complete a paper-based registration and see the Academic Advisor for approval. Courses at the Other Claremont Colleges If you are taking undergraduate courses at the Claremont Colleges for graduate credit, be aware that professors have been advised to add extra work reading, writing, and/or leading class for graduate students. You are responsible for contacting undergraduate professors to request permission to take their classes and to determine the amount and nature of additional work. As a rule, courses numbered below 100 are lower-level courses and are not appropriate for graduate credit. If you are interested in a course numbered below 100, it may be possible to use it as the basis for a tutorial reading, which combines course attendance with substantial additional work. You must secure the approval of your program Director as well as the professor before registering for such a course. For more information: Incompletes Incompletes (failure to complete required coursework within the duration of the course) may be considered signs of unsatisfactory performance. If you receive financial support from CGU, do not carry more than two incompletes at any time. Two or more incompletes may result in the suspension of financial support. Incompletes also handicap students in external fellowship competitions. CGU allows up to one year for the completion of an incomplete. Professors often establish deadlines of less than one year, and students are subject to faculty deadlines. Please familiarize yourself with the CGU Incomplete Policy: 5

6 Independent Study You may organize independent studies of either 2 or 4 units to pursue specialized topics under the guidance of a professor. Bear in mind that when the independent study replaces a course, you must do an equivalent amount of reading and writing. Your plan for independent study must be approved by the Program Director. You will need to provide a course syllabus and/or study plan from your independent study instructor, which should include a reading list, description of scheduled meetings (at least one hour per week for a 4-unit course), and description of writing assignments. For more information: Research Tool A research tool is a specialized analytical method that requires advanced training (e.g. statistical analysis, archeological methods, video production methods, and so forth). Arts Management students fulfill the research tool requirement by completing the ARMGT 359 Practice-Based Research for Arts Leaders core course. Dual Degree Policy for MBA/MAAM The following policy applies to students who are currently enrolled in a Joint Degree program with Management who want to add the MBA degree. Joint degrees in management include: Arts Management; Financial Engineering; and Politics, Economics and Business. Students enrolled in a Joint Degree program must complete at least 36 units of their Joint degree requirements prior to applying for the MBA. Once the student has completed at least 36 units for their primary degree, s/he must: 1. both the Drucker Admissions Director and Program Director stating her/his intent to add the MBA degree. This request must be made during the semester in which the first master s degree will be completed/conferred. 2. Fulfill the admissions requirement for the MBA program: GMAT or GRE score, undergraduate GPA, essay explaining why the student would like to add the MBA, and an interview with the Program Director and MBA Admissions office. 3. The student will be notified by the MBA Admissions office regarding the admissions decision. 4. If admitted, the student will be required to submit a Change of Degree form (available online). 5. The second master s degree must begin in the semester following the completion of the first degree. Enrollment must be continuous. (Remember summer is not a semester in which enrollment is required.) Upon admission to the MBA program, there is no guarantee that the Fellowship amount from their Joint Degree program will carry over to the MBA program. Students should contact the MBA Admissions Director regarding fellowship opportunities. 6

7 Schedule for completion of the MA The CGU Bulletin states that MA students must complete all requirements within 5 years. Students who cannot complete all requirements within the allotted 5 years may apply for a time extension. For more information: Students with F1 or J1 visas must complete the MA in two (2) years. Contact the International Student Advisor for more information on this. 3 courses (12 units) per semester constitute a full course load. You may take fewer units if you wish, but be aware that if you take fewer than 4 units during the period before you complete your required number of units, you cannot defer your federal student loan payments. If you are taking 12 units per semester, you should be able to complete the MA in approx. 4 semesters. Funding In addition to financial aid, CGU provides a number of merit fellowships. These and other institutional funds are listed in the Bulletin. The Bulletin also provides information about California State Graduate Fellowships and Federal Aid. We encourage you to seek external grants and fellowships for graduate study. You will find below a list of some places to begin your search. Many grants have a lengthy application process, with application deadlines in early fall for funding which begins the following fall. In addition to writing the application, you will have to gather faculty recommendations. Plan ahead. Allow your faculty ample time to write references, and yourself the time to write a carefully considered application. CGU Office of Student Financing Information on institutional aid, federal financial aid, other sources, and the application process. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education California Community Foundation Information regarding grant information, including where to look and what is available. California Student Aid Commission Offers several graduate fellowships (California State Cal Grants) which are usually awarded based on merit. Fulbright Fellowships Grants available for graduate study, dissertation fellowships, and advanced research. American Association of University Women (AAUW) Educational Foundation Predoctoral, dissertation, and postdoctoral fellowships for female scholars in the arts and sciences. American Council of Learned Societies A private, non-profit federation of 61 national scholarly organizations. 7

8 Research Assistantships From time to time, the Arts Management Program may offer assistantships to its students. If you wish to work as a research assistant, make your interest known to the Director and to the faculty with whom you work. 8
