Advising

Have questions about the concentration, course selection, possible career paths?  We are here for you!  All students are welcome to visit our now virtual Zoom office hours.  (Unfortunately, we have not yet figured out how to give you virtual coffee and chocolate during OH...)

Office Hours

OH for Spring 2020 have closed. 

All of your Ec Advisors are still here for you  to chat, discuss, answer questions--whatever you need. While office hours are closed, you can reach your advisors via email (contact info below). 
 

Concentration Advisors

The Advising Team consists of six PhD economists who serve as Lecturer/Advisors: Kiran Gajwani, Anne Le Brun, Greg Bruich, Thomas Baranga, Judd Cramer, and Andrés Maggi. Concentration advisors release advisor holds during course selection, meet with you to discuss your plan of study, approve changes of concentration, and so on (House tutors cannot sign forms for the concentration). They can also help you understand your departmental requirements, discuss your academic interests, and offer advice on course choices and future plans. So, who is your advisor? 

You are always welcome to talk with any ec advisor, and any advisor can sign forms for you.  However, we encourage you to email the advisor assigned to your House for any questions and to get to know them over your years as a concentrator. 

Economics House Tutors

Economics House Tutors are appointed by House Faculty Deans as resident or nonresident tutors and have experience and interest in Economics. House tutors serve on committees and organize House events for residents. Ec House tutors can also give you informal concentration advice.
