Student Advising

Advising for Bachelor of Arts Economics Courses

The Arts Advising office assists UBC Faculty of Arts students throughout their degree: from helping them understand their degree requirements and responsibilities, to connecting them to appropriate support resources, to approving their application for graduation.

Additional economics-specific course advising is provided by the faculty of the Vancouver School of Economics to undergraduate arts students, by appointment only. Please come to the Vancouver School of Economics Main Office in Iona Building (6000 Iona Drive) to book an appointment, or telephone (604) 822-2876.
