This information is part of the Colgate University catalog, 2023-24.

Students are urged to enroll in the program as early as possible, with entry normally occurring no later than the end of the junior year.

For students graduating in the Class of 2025 and earlier, please refer to prior University Catalog requirements.

Minor Requirements

The minor consists of six courses:

One of the following courses in environmental justice:

One of the following courses on environmental economics and policy:

One of the following courses in environmental science:

Two of the following environmental studies electives:

Note: One of these courses must be an ENST offering (or cross-listed with ENST) and one of the courses must be taken at the 300-level or above. A single course may satisfy both of these requirements, but two electives in total are required. Courses may not double count for both an elective and the other major requirements listed above. ENST 450 and ENST 450L provide an important community-based research experience for ENST minors, and therefore the course is recommended as an elective but not required.
