Study Abroad Transfer Credits
Dr. Sunil Gulati is the study abroad advisor, and he can be contacted by email at email@example.com. Students who wish to apply economics courses from study abroad programs towards the economics major or concentration must first consult with Dr. Gulati prior to taking the course(s). Dr. Gulati will assess the course(s) and give preliminary and final approval. Only courses that are given final approval will be applied towards the economics major or concentration.
Faculty Advisors (for Declared Majors only)
Faculty advisors are available only during the academic year. Students may request a personal faculty advisor to discuss academic or career goals. Faculty advisors will not discuss major requirements – that is the role of the graduate student advisors. Faculty advisors will discuss course selection to meet intellectual goals and interests, as well as career or research options. If you plan on attending a PhD program in economics or pursuing economics research after graduation, then it is recommended that you request a faculty advisor.
To request a faculty advisor, please complete the Faculty Advisor Request form online.
Data TA Office Hours - Spring 2023
These office hours are in person. Please reserve an appointment time on this Calendar Link:
Please Note: Beginning the week of March 20 (after Spring Break) the Data TA hours are as follows:
Tuesdays: 1:30pm – 4:00pm Lehman Library, Room 329A
(to the left as you enter the library)
Wednesdays: 1:30pm – 4:00pm Lehman Library, Room 329A
It would be helpful to start coming to discuss projects as early as possible in the semester. Being familiar with what you’re working on will make it much easier for the Data TA to assist you later in the semester when time is at a premium.
