Elective Courses

Any energy-related course offered at Notre Dame may be used as an elective for the Energy Studies Minor. This list varies from semester to semester and may not include all options. Additional courses, including those taken abroad, may be acceptable with pre-approval. A course that teaches a skill that can be applied to energy may be used with pre-approval and proof that some assignments were energy related. Such courses are not included on this list. Use the ENST attribute in Class Search or NOVO to find approved electives.

New this year, there are more courses listed specifically under ND Energy (ENER). In most cases, this guarantees seats for Energy Studies minors. Once those seats are filled, students may register through a cross-listed section. 

Energy Studies minors are required to have the pre-requisites before registering for a course. If minor students believe they can handle the course material or if a class is full, students should contact the professor directly. ND Energy is not able to get students into classes.
For additional information or questions, contact Anne Berges Pillai, apillai@nd.edu.
