Undergraduate Curriculum in Economics

BA Economics

The undergraduate curriculum in Economics is broad-based to provide sound knowledge in economic theories to even new learners of Economics.

Educational Objectives:

  • To stimulate students intellectually through the study of Economics and to lead them to appreciate its application to a range of problems and its relevance in a variety of contexts
  • To provide a firm foundation of knowledge about the workings of the economy
  • To equip students with appropriate tools of analysis to tackle issues and problems of economic policy
  • To generate in students an appreciation of the economic dimension of wider social and political issues
  • To develop in students, through the study of economics, a range of transferable skills that will be of value in employment and self-employment
  • To provide students with the knowledge and skill base, from which they can proceed to further studies in Economics, related areas or in multi-disciplinary areas that involve Economics

The department has placed much attention on developing the facilities available on campus to foster a positive attitude towards application and research even for its undergraduate students.  Student research projects at the undergraduate levels of learning have been a feature of the Lady Doak College curriculum for over 40 years.  The variety of areas and issues covered through these maiden research attempts by the students of the Department of Economics is considerable.  Even though every student in the department is allotted a faculty guide, they are encouraged to interact with others to get the best of the expertise that is available not only within the department but also across disciplines. 

Students are given ample opportunities to use the internet facilities on campus and in the department.  The teachers and students are trained in computer-aided data analysis.   Journals are subscribed to and students refer these journals not only for their own research projects but also to supplement classroom and textbook learning.  Off-campus training and visits to industries, banks, rural areas and interaction with NGOs enhance their learning and employability.
