Advising & Services


The Economics Student Services Mission is to advise our students by providing a high standard of service in a supportive and collaborative environment.  Advisors work as a team to provide accurate information in a timely manner.  We partner with faculty to assist students in engaging with the campus and the Santa Barbara campus community.  We value fairness, diversity, and the important roles our students, faculty, and staff in the Department of Economics play at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
