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, and only during the Fall and Spring semesters.
For study abroad or transfer course approvals, help with Economics Independent Studies, questions about the Certificate in Applied Economics Research on Cooperative Enterprise, or questions about graduate school in Economics, please email Valerie Voorheis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Internships or general study abroad questions, please email Russell Janis, email@example.com.
For all other Economics Major or Minor Advising:
Please schedule an appointment or email with Leah Dodson if your last name starts with any of the letters A-L.
Please schedule an appointment or email with Stephanie Brewer if your last name starts with any of the letters M-Z.
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.
