For questions about:

Interested in becoming an Economics major? 

Who is my advisor?

There are four economics major advisors and over 1500 Economics majors. We don’t have assigned caseloads and we don’t require advising (unless you are below a 2.0 GPA). You are welcome to schedule with the same advisor you have met with before, or with whichever advisor best fits your schedule! Our records system allows us to review notes from your previous advising sessions, to assure continuity for you, regardless of which advisor you met with previously. Meet our advising team below!
