Welcome to the UCLA Department of Economics

The counselors in the UCLA Department of Economics Undergraduate Counseling Office advise students on the requirements for the Economics and the Business Economics majors, enrollment in Economics courses, program planning for a double major, advice about studying abroad, scholarships, and referrals to various resources on campus. The counselors also coordinate events for prospective and current students such as Bruin Day for admitted students, new student advising sessions in the summer, and commencement. For general program planning and questions about the College and University requirements, students should meet with a counselor in the College.
