At Carleton, we approach learning with enthusiasm, energy, and a distinctly Carleton brand of playfulness. This is a collaborative place where students and professors work together to make sense of the messiness of life. With over 30 majors to choose from, you can explore your interests – and develop new ones. Located in Northfield, Minnesota, we're just 40 miles south of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Often cited for its charm and livability, Northfield consistently ranks among the best college towns.
