Economics Department Prefects, TA's and Student Departmental Advisors (SDA's)

Student departmental advisers (SDAs) are seniors who serve as a resource for all current students, especially new students, who want to talk to a knowledgeable and experienced upper class student about courses and registration. They supplement the information and advice available through faculty advisers and published materials, and refer students to the proper office or department when needed.

Student Departmental Advisers - 2014/15:

Jake Kramer

Hi. My name is Jake Kramer, and I’m a senior economics major and European studies concentrator from Princeton, NJ.  I am involved in several campus publications, including the Carl and the Lens, and I play lacrosse. During my time here, I’ve taken both principles courses, Law and Economics, European Economic History, American Economic History, Economics, Property and Institutions in Natural Resources, and all three 300-levels. This past summer, I worked as a research assistant for Prof. Mark Kanazawa, modeling tourism demand along the north shore of Lake Superior, and how it’s affected by climate change.

If you have questions about classes, student organizations, opportunities for economics majors, or anything in general, please feel free to contact me via email at

Emily Turner

Hi.  My name is Emily Turner I am a senior Economics and Math/Stats major from Wilmette IL. At Carleton I am involved in a lot of different things on campus; I have done College buddies since I was a freshman, I am a campus tour guide, I am the current president of the JSC (Jewish Students of Carleton), and I love to cook.  I have held multiple positions in the Economics department, as an office assistant, microeconomics prefect, and current Price Theory TA.  I have taken a wide variety of economics courses at Carleton including Microeconomics of Development, Managerial Economics, Behavioral Economics, Economics of Natural Resources, and the three core classes (Econometrics, Price Theory, and Intermediate Macroeconomics). I also went abroad (on a non-Carleton program) to Buenos Aires, Argentina and learned about South American Economics and politics.

If you have any questions about going abroad, double majoring, the Economics department, the Math/Stats major, campus jobs, or anything else please don’t hesitate to email me
