Natural Sciences Topical Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Minors

Director E. Nolen

Students pursing an individualized topical major must first discuss a possible program of study with an appropriate academic adviser, and then provide the division director with the proposed program and a rationale for this program no later than the student’s fifth term at Colgate.

The topical major comprises at least 10 courses that closely relate to a common theme and are complementary. Normally, eight courses must be major courses in departments within the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. Five or more of these courses must be at the 300 or 400 level, and at least one must be a non-independent study, 400-level course in a science department. An overall GPA of at least 2.00 is required for the courses chosen to meet major requirements.

For more information about the division, please visit the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics  catalogue page.
