June and July 2011

Dr. Stephen Lich-Tyler, Undergraduate Advisor

Department of Economics
University of North Carolina
Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3305

The Undergraduate Advisor in the economics department is Dr. Stephen Lich-Tyler. I am a general advising resource for students majoring in economics, considering an economics major, or taking economics courses. In particular, I can:

  • provide detailed information about the economics major or economics courses;
  • assist you with academic planning and course selection;
  • check your progress toward completing the major requirements;
  • help you navigate through various administrative processes;
  • discuss career and internship opportunities;
  • offer advice on graduate and professional schools; and
  • discuss any other questions or concerns that you may have.

I am available for advising meetings throughout summer 2011.

During summer 2011, you have three ways to contact me for advising:

  • in my office at Steele Building or Gardner Hall;
  • online voice (or text) chat, using Skype; or
  • email. (Please realize that scheduled in-person and online meetings take priority over email exchanges.)

For in-person meetings: I encourage you to schedule a meeting using the Academic Advising Program's Appointment Calendar. You will need to select "major/minor advising" for economics. The times when I am usually available are listed below. (I will, however, be out of town during the week of July 4th.) Other times can be arranged, as necessary. I am also available for drop-in visits during these hours.

  • Wednesdays, 11:00 - 3:00, first floor of Steele Building
