Advising

Academic advising for students in the Economics Department is provided from the following members of the Economics faculty: Cora Bennett, Eva Dziadula, Davin Raiha, and Forrest Spence. You can find their contact information and/or book an appointment at the bottom of this page.

These academic advisors assist students in designing a program that meets their educational and career goals. A typical plan of study for students deciding on an Economics major in their first year is as follows.  Although this progression is recommended for incoming students intending to major in Economics, there is a good deal of flexibility in scheduling for those declaring an Economics major at a later date.
