The Subject Economics was in the college as a subsidiary of the Under Graduate Commerce course (B. Com) from the inception of the college. A full-fledged Department was established in 2002. From then onwards till date, it has been offering Honours courses in Economics and Economics as general subject for both B.A and B.Sc. Programmes.
Presently the department has one permanent faculty and two temporary faculties. Faculties of the department are engaged in active research work. The sincere efforts of the faculty members meet the needs of the students. Students are prepared by regular class room lectures and by providing relevant reference materials, extra classes, etc. They are asked to do home assignments regularly in the form of various projects and surveys so as to get an opportunity to practically apply the theories which they are studying in their curriculum.
Students are encouraged to participate in various external seminars held by other institutions exclusively for students. They are also encouraged to pursue higher studies in related disciplines.
The Department maintains a Book Bank from where, faculties and students can issue books as and when required. The Department also maintains a question bank which gives the students an opportunity to tackle different kinds of questions and face with confidence any kind of examination, be it the university examinations or any competitive examinations.
The Dept also regularly organizes UGC Sponsored Seminars where eminent academic personalities are invited which enrich not only the students and faculties of the Dept. but also the College.
