Welcome, Undergraduates!

Find out all you need to know about how and why to major in economics.

EcoTeach, the student administrative center for the Department of Economics, provides undergraduates with the tools to navigate successfully through the economics major and minor, as well as the finance minor and concentration. Some of the services offered by the EcoTeach office include assisting students with advising, course registration, course permissions, independent study applications, honors theses applications and preparation, and graduation.

EcoTeach is open Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 4:00pm. Feel free to stop by 138 Social Sciences during these hours for assistance.

Mandatory Open Advising

The dates and times for Open Advising are as follows:

Nov. 2 - 5 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Nov. 6 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Nov. 9 - 12  1:00pm - 5:00pm
Nov. 13 1:00pm - 4:00pm

All first majors must come to Open Advising in EcoTeach in order to be cleared for Spring 2016 registration. This must be done each semester. If you have not yet completed New Major Orientation, you must first complete it before attending open advising. In years past we have conducted evening info sessions for New Major Orientation, but now it is on Sakai. If you attended a session in the past, you do not need to complete the New Major Orientation on Sakai. If you have not, log in to Sakai and open the “Econ Major Orientation” page/workspace to watch the videos and take the quiz. Please let me know if you have any questions or problems.

If economics is your second major, you are welcome, but not required, to attend Open Advising and complete New Major Orientation.
