This is your one-stop online shop for all UC Davis undergraduate needs in the Department of Economics.


Forms and sample plans

General petitions processed through the Office of the Registrar, including but not limited to undergraduate course changes and retroactive petitions, are now found on the website. You also can find general forms on the College of Letters & Sciences website.

To track your progress in the degree, you can use the major and minor degree checks. The four-year plans and transfer two-year plans are also useful when following your progress in the programs.

Sample Plans

Undergraduate Handbook

The Undergraduate Handbook is a useful reference to help undergraduate students as they maneuver through the Economics degree and beyond. The handbook contains useful tips and instructions regarding various components of the degree. We urge students to also meet with a major advisor for more information specific to their needs.

OASIS forms and petitions

Student forms are available online via the student portal (OASIS). You may initiate a petition under "Forms & Petitions."

Degree worksheets

Major advisors update degree worksheets quarterly to track your progress. You can also start a degree worksheet via the student portal, or OASIS under "Degree Worksheets."

Economics transfer course archive

Transfer students, students studying abroad or students who have taken courses at any other college or university may review course equivalencies on the Economics Course Archive. If a course you completed or plan to take is not listed in the archive, you may request a new course review petition or speak with a major advisor.

Frequently asked questions

If you are unable to meet with a major advisor or just have a quick question, you may reference the Economics FAQs. You may also refer to the College of Letters and Science FAQs for inquiries not specific to the Economics major.

Tutoring in Economics

The Economics Department conducts tutoring services for undergraduate courses. These courses vary among academic quarters, depending on the courses taught during that quarter. The Economics tutoring office is at 126 Social Sciences & Humanities Building, and office hours are available and updated online.

For additional tutoring resources, you may also hire graduate student tutors.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor for an Economics course, you will need to contact the instructor of the course and obtain permission to tutor the class. You must have completed the course with at least a B+ grade in order to be considered as a tutor. Tutors earn one unit of credit for three hours of tutoring per week. Tutoring credit does not count toward the Economics major requirements.

After the instructor has approved you as a tutor, you will need to complete paperwork with the instructor. This completed paperwork and your office hours must be submitted to the Economics Department Undergraduate Office before you will be issued a course reference number (CRN) to enroll in ECN 197T via Schedule Builder. 

If you are interested in becoming a tutor and want information or need assistance, visit the Economics and History Advising Center, 2216 Social Science & Humanities Building.

Honor Society: Omicron Delta Epsilon

Omicron Delta Epsilon, one of the world's largest academic honor societies, was created through the merger of two honor societies: Omicron Delta Gamma and Omicron Chi Epsilon. Omicron Delta Gamma (the Order of Artus) was founded in 1915, and Omicron Chi Epsilon dates to 1955. Omicron Delta Epsilon has more than 680 chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, France, Kazakhstan, and the United Arab Emirates.

Please review the Omicron Delta Epsilon admissions requirements and application process if you are interested. For further questions, you may also speak with an Economics major advisor.

Department awards and citations

Students can be recognized for outstanding academic achievements, commended for completion of an honors thesis, and acknowledged as recipients for various other awards through the department. An online listing salutes our recent award recipients.

You may also apply to receive the March Family Internship Fund, which supports Economics students who participate in business-related internships.

Internships and jobs

Economics students are in high demand for recruitment into internship and job opportunities both on and off campus. As a result, housing all internship and job openings within the department is impossible. Instead, students may contact the Internship and Career Center, where an analyst can best pair you with a position based on your interests and preferred professional pipeline.

You also can review Aggie Job Link for additional job postings.

You can receive ECN192: Internship credit for an internship already offered to you.
