2022 Pre-College Course Offerings

Colorado College will require all students, faculty, and staff who are living, learning, working on and accessing campus be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All Pre-College students will be required to provide proof of vaccination or exemption by June 1, 2022. 

Making this decision allows us to plan for and look forward to our in-person summer program. Full vaccination as a community will allow us to move past the great challenges of the pandemic and provide the personal attention, unequaled academic experience, and supportive, enriching learning environment you expect from Colorado College. Thank you for helping us make this a reality.

Students considering majors in history, political science, pre-law, or the humanities will need to hone their critical thinking and analytical skills while simultaneously developing a broad understanding of the complexities of the American government, history, and society. Designed for pre-college students, this course examines the deeply rooted interconnectedness between race and the law. Students will study the origins of Critical Race Theory (CRT), its major themes, such as liberalism, counter-storytelling, and intersectionality, and critiques of CRT, with a particular focus on political, legal, scholarly, and popular discourses.

GY 107: Physical Geology of the Pikes Peak Region


Professor Christine Siddoway

In this course we will be taking advantage of our fabulous and geologically intricate surroundings to explore some major geologic concepts. Geology is a science that draws on many other sciences – chemistry, physics, even biology! – and the range of topics covered in this course are similarly diverse. The overall goal here is to give you an introduction to the geosciences, and more importantly, to set you up with the tools needed to make observations and interpretations in a scientifically valid manner.
