Frequently Asked Questions


What is a concentration?

Students may elect to complete one of Carleton’s 16 concentrations in addition to a major. A concentration is an integrated interdisciplinary program that may strengthen and complement a major, but a student majoring in any department could potentially participate in any concentration. Concentrations bridge the boundaries of academic disciplines, promote communities of learning, and relate academic studies to the kinds of issues and opportunities students confront outside of Carleton.
