Majors & Minors

CC's breadth of educational options distinguishes us from many other schools. You'll eventually focus on at least one academic discipline in-depth, but you'll have more than 80 majors, minors, and specialized programs to choose from. If you want to concentrate on more than one department, there are several combined or distributed majors, and even a self-defined major. If you decide to focus on significant themes from several disciplines, opt for a thematic minor. If you'd like to learn more about a major or program, feel free to browse the academic department websites.

Thematic Minors

Thematic minors focus your education on significant themes examined from several disciplinary perspectives. They reflect the belief of Colorado College that, in addition to the more specialized major, you need to gain experience in comparing and connecting ideas and approaches across the disciplines. For this reason, thematic minors are designed to end with an integrative experience in which you bring together much of what you have learned in the minor. Successful completion of a thematic minor will be recorded on your official transcript.
