Economics majors can participate in off-campus study in the junior year. If you are planning to major in economics and study off-campus, you should seriously consider enrolling in ECON 101 and 102 (principles) as a first-year student and ECON 201 and 202 (intermediate microeconomic and macroeconomic theory) as second-year student to provide a sound base for off-campus study. When choosing courses for an off-campus program, you need to remember that accounting, business management, marketing, and other business-related courses are not accepted for Kenyon credit. The department chair and your economics advisor will work with you on course selections.
The Center for Global Engagement can provide you with more information about study abroad opportunities as well as a list of Kenyon-approved programs.
The Shepherd Lecture Series was established in 1986 by Virginia Jergens in honor of her husband, Richard Grandin Shepherd (Kenyon 1941). The Series provides a public lecture on an economic issue for a general audience, and a presentation designed for departmental faculty and students. The intent was to enhance Kenyon's public offerings on economic issues of interest and importance to the entire college community, and to contribute to liberal education with meetings between the lecturer and small groups of students.
The Economics Department usually has opportunities for student employment as:
ECON 101-102 and 201-202 Graders: Junior and senior economics majors who have completed ECON 201 and 202. Individual instructors make their own arrangements.
Established in honor of long-time professor of economics, Paul Titus (1933-1972), the prize is awarded annually to the senior who has demonstrated unusual competence in economics and in the use of the tools of economic analysis. The recipient of the prize is announced at the annual Honor's Day Convocation and his or her name is added to a plaque displayed in Ascension Hall.
The award is presented to the senior majoring in psychology or economics who best demonstrates a successful integration of his/her major with one or more disciplines. These disciplines may include any field in which you can major or concentrate at Kenyon College. To be considered for the award, students must submit evidence of interdisciplinary work. The recipient of the award is announced at the annual Honor's Day Convocation.
