Using Your Degree

One of the most common questions asked of us by undergraduates is "what can I do with an undergraduate degree in economics?". Or students sometimes say "I would love to major in economics, but I am not certain it provides the best training for employment". Well, it turns out that a bachelor's degree in economics is one of the most valuable undergraduate degrees available.



New Student Information

A student's first year in college is the most important. Success in the first year is an indicator on how a student will do for the rest of their college career. Because of this, we, as academic advisors, pay close attention to this population of students. This includes requiring our First Years to meet with us before they can register for the next semester courses.
