Professor Randall Bartlett, Ph.D.

Professor Randall Bartlett

  • Stanford University
The Great Courses have permitted me to share my enthusiasm for European History and Culture outside the classroom, reaching an engaged and passionate audience intent on learning.
Dr. Randall Bartlett is Professor of Economics and Director of the Urban Studies Program at Smith College, where he has taught for 30 years. A graduate of Occidental College, he earned both his master's degree and doctorate from Stanford University and taught at Williams College and the University of Washington before joining the Smith faculty. A highly skilled teacher, Professor Bartlett has twice won all-college teaching awards at Smith and was the 2003 recipient of the college's Distinguished Professor Award. He has served at both the department and college levels as a teaching mentor to junior faculty and has been instrumental in developing a number of important programs at Smith, including founding and directing the Phoebe Reese Lewis Leadership Program and serving as the first director of the Public Policy Program. He also presents each fall a wildly popular financial literacy lecture series that is attended not only by students, faculty, and staff, but also by members of the community of Northampton. The author of numerous articles on economics and public life, Professor Bartlett has also written three books, including his most recent, The Crisis of America's Cities, which explores the problems and prospects of urban America.
Testimonials

"Professor Bartlett's application of economics to everyday life is engaging and led to my decision to purchase the more detailed 36 lecture course on economics from The Great Courses. No regrets."
