B.A. Economics Program Advisement

Professor Matthew Baker
Advisor for Undergraduates with Majors, Minors, or Interests in Economics
Office: Hunter West 1532
Phone: (212) 772-4217

Spring 2017 Advising Hours:
Mondays 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM
Wednesdays 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM


For all administrative advising questions (e.g., evaluation of transfer credits, trouble registering for a class, or graduation audit), students must see one of the department’s undergraduate advisors during advising hours. No one else has access to the registration system or authorization to make these decisions.

The advisors are also available for academic advising questions (e.g., Should I take micro before macro?  Is it OK to take 221 and 300 simultaneously?). In addition, your professors may answer your academic questions (and only your academic questions) during their office hours.

The advisors are extremely busy during registration periods, so plan ahead. They may be unable to deal with other issues during registration, no matter how pressing they are to you.  Clear up your transfer credit issues well in advance of registration.  You would also do well to get advice about course selection questions before the registration crunch starts.
