Summer 2012

Directors: Michael Hemesath and Stephen Strand

Founded in 1983, the Economics Seminar in Cambridge has been located at the University of Cambridge for over 25 years.  The University has been home to many great economic theorists including Alfred Marshall, John Maynard Keynes, and F.A. Hayek.  Being in Britain allows students to study the contemporary British economy, the European Union and the Industrial Revolution.  The program has become a popular part of the economics curriculum at Carleton, and the faculty believes the seminar’s historical focus and exposure to British culture help students see themselves, their country, and the world with new perspective.

ELIGIBILITY

Students who have completed Economics 110 and 111 by the end of spring term 2012 are eligible to participate in the seminar. Students majoring in economics, political science, and history are particularly encouraged to apply, but the seminar is open to students of all majors.
