Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of Summer Session 2021, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page.  We anticipate a return to campus for Fall 2021.

Job search assistance

How does the department assist graduates who are searching for jobs?

A professor in the Department of Economics serves as a placement director to guide students in applying for jobs. Graduate student résumés are posted on the web, and students are notified about job opportunities. The department conducts "practice job interviews" and “job seminars” to help graduate students to prepare for the job market.
