Our advising process
Step 1: Use the department website
Start looking for answers on this website. Degree requirements can be found on our Economics Major, Economics Minor and BA/MA Program webpages. Answers to common questions can be found on our FAQs webpages:
Step 2: Consult with our Assistant Director
Please email Christy Anderson or call 847-491-2798 for general questions.
Step 3: Visit an Undergraduate Advisor
See one of our faculty advisers who hold office hours throughout the week. They can help you with most problems and are the only people who sign petitions to graduate, or declarations of a major or minor. See office hours for Undergraduate Advisors.
Step 4: Consult with the Director of Undergraduate Studies
In complicated cases, our advisor will refer you to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Mark Witte.
The Department maintains a list of Northwestern Economics graduate students willing to tutor students in various economics subjects. See the graduate student tutors.Back to top
