The Department of Economics offers a three year major in Economics leading to a B.A. (Hons) degree. In addition to major in Economics, the department also offers interdisciplinary majors in Economics and Finance, Economics and History as well as Politics, Philosophy and Economics. After completion of bachelor’s degree requirements students also have the option of doing a fourth year as a part of the Advanced Scholars’ Programme. The aim of these programmes is to equip students with quantitative tools as well as strong logical reasoning ability such that students are able to understand the role of economics in everyday decision making as well as the impact of alternative public policies on inequality and welfare.
The degree programme combines the rigour of statistical and mathematical methods, graphical analysis and intuitive reasoning. Further, students will also learn to use statistical software for data analysis.
After completion of the degree programme, students can expect to pursue a Master’s in Economics as well as pursue a career in the private or public sector.
