BA.Eco(H)-(Bachelor of Economics)- 3 Years


The course provides a sound theoretical basis in economic theory supplemented by practical applications of theories. The first four semesters are devoted to give a firm background in microeconomics, macroeconomics, development economics & international economics. In the fifth and sixth semesters, the students take two compulsory courses namely Indian Economy since Independence & Financial Economics. They have elective courses in the final year encompassing two options each semester. The elective courses offered by the department are mathematical methods for economics or health economics in the fifth semester and statistical methods for economics or environmental economics in the sixth semester. The BA economics programme aims at developing among students a sound theoretical understanding of the subject along with practical applications. The idea is not to instill interest in any one particular area of research or cater to the requirements of a particular kind of job. Studying economics today opens up several possibilities for the future, and the idea is to guide students select their own trajectory in career advancement.
