Advising for Declared Economics Majors and Minors

Students who have already declared Economics majors and minors may schedule appointments with Economics advisors by clicking on the "Make an Advising Appointment" button to the left.  We highly recommend that students enter a brief description or list specific questions they have in the "Tell us more!" box when making an appointment.  Students planning to declare a major or minor in Economics must follow the instructions on the Economics Admissions page.

Drop-in advising is available only during the times specified below each advisor's contact information below. 

Our Undergraduate Advising Blog includes advising tips, internship opportunities, workshops, events, career development and much, much more!

Global Education (Global Ed) Requirement Advising

The Global Education Requirement pertains only to SBS Bachelor of Arts majors who entered UMass prior to the Fall 2018 semester.

Students whose primary major is Economics (or who are pursuing a dual degree with Economics and another major), are required to complete the 15-credit Global Ed Requirement for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS). The Global Education Requirement is managed and advised by SBS, so questions about Global Ed should be directed to an advisor in the SBS Advising Resource Center.
