As Economics Department advisors, we provide a broad variety of services to assist undergraduate students in academic development. While our primary role is to advise Economics majors on strategies for degree completion, we also assist students on a number of related issues including: university policies, career choices, social and personal adjustment to university life, and opportunities such as study abroad and internships.

Advising for Economics majors is not mandatory. However, students are encouraged to meet with an advisor on a periodic basis to at least confirm progress in meeting degree requirements.

Advising is usually available without an appointment Monday - Friday from 10:00 - 4:30. Occasionally, advisors must attend meetings outside their offices or host orientation sessions, so if you are making a special trip to campus, we suggest you call in advance to confirm availability. You can reach the advising office at 301-405-8367.

Although lots of information is available about all the various resources on campus, sometimes it may seem like there is too much information about too many possible choices, and you will want somebody to help you figure out what makes sense for you. We hope that you will take advantage of our services and see how committed we are to helping you make your time here at the University of Maryland as productive and intellectually stimulating as possible.
