Advising - Undergraduate Program

All majors are expected and required to see an advisor at least once a year and preferably every semester.

You can go on advising day or any other time when your advisor is available. Most faculty serve as advisors. To find an advisor, go to our faculty page and look for * (star) next to a faculty member's name. Faculty office hours are posted in the department office and can also be found here: Faculty Office Hours [pdf].

We are particularly concerned that students sequence their courses correctly. Some students have taken longer to graduate because they have delayed taking their quantitative classes (Math 226, Econ 311 and 312) too late in their career.

Math 226 is a requirement for our intermediate classes (Econ 301 and Econ 302) and it is in every student's best interest to take this class as soon as possible.

Econ 312 is a pre-requisite for Econ 690 that cannot be taken concurrently. Therefore, it must be taken prior to the last semester.

For more information, take a look at our suggested course sequence.

For information on course substitution, please see our equivalents and requirements for graduation by bulletin year.

If your course does not follow our specific guidelines, you should see Dr. Mar about equivalencies for Math 226, and Dr. Chattopadhyay about equivalencies for Econ 311 and 312.
