The key to making the most of your educational opportunities is advising, so it is essential that you seek proper advice. Our faculty, staff advisors and peer advisors play an important role in advising on all aspects of the major.
During the academic year, we have Peer Advising Monday-Friday. Our office also has a Career Center Peer Advisor and an EAP Peer Advisor once a week during the academic year. (Schedules vary quarter-to-quarter.)
There are two Staff Undergraduate Advisors as well as a Faculty Director for each of the Economics Department's Undergraduate Programs. Please anticipate a response within 3-5 business days on your emails due to a large volume of inquiries. We appreciate and thank you for your patience in this matter.
