About the Department

The department, since its inception, has been offering undergraduate courses in both Honours and General. The teaching programmes in the Department are focused on proper blending of 'quality' and 'relevance'. The students have performed well in the University examinations and we hope to keep up such level of performances in future as well. Economics becomes a vital subject for learners in this era of globalisation and industrialisation. More importantly, studying economics will help a person to think like an economist. The students here are helped to develop their analytical skills so that they can identify the day-to-day economic problems and understand their implications (both individual and country level). Several newspaper and journal articles are referred for convenience. Consequently, studying economics gives one a superb preparation for many careers in business, government sector, law, research and corporate world. The Department makes use of a well-stocked collection of reference books to aid learners in their learning. The books in the Departmental Library are from well-known foreign publication houses. Keeping in mind the educational background of the students, the library also has a good collection of Basic Beginner, student friendly text books in Bengali version. Although the Department started its journey with one Faculty and fewer students in the year 2015, in recent years it witnessed a significant amount of influx which shows that many students are showing interest in this subject. We are confident that the Department will witness a significant progress with time in terms of infrastructure and resources.
