From this department, we offer one major : Economics
The Economics Program aims to expose students to the theoretical, analytical frameworks and policy within the discipline of Economics. This program enables students to rationalize through analytical frameworks, evaluate empirical evidence and develop a critical approach to understanding interactions between theory and policy.
The Economics Major enables students to excel in the area of economic analysis by contributing to economic commentary, decision making, and contribute towards research. The courses cover a range of courses in Economics viz. Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Indian Economy, International Economics, etc. The Program trains students to generate critical insights rooted in methodological approaches, through reflective reading and writing and interpretation of data pertaining to economic activities.
The Major introduces students to concepts in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and applied fields of Economics. Intermediate courses focus on understanding the assumptions and criticisms of the theories. The advanced courses in economics focus on applying mathematical tools to economic theories. The courses also encourage students to techniques used in analyzing economic data. Students are also expected to write papers on topics in Economics.
