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

Economics students are required to complete mandatory advising with an assigned faculty advisor during the Fall semester. It is recommended to keep in touch with the same assigned advisor during the Spring semester.

Are you headed in the right direction?

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 ECON690 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. Chaudhuri about equivalencies for MATH 226, and Dr. Bar about equivalencies for ECON 311 and 312.
