Department of Economics

The Department of Economics is one of the premier departments of this University in the Faculty of Arts & Commerce. The Department of Economics forms the core of first few departments with which the university started imparting quality education in tranquil sylvan surroundings to the students of a relatively backward rural area, a little more than a decade after independence.

The department had a modest beginning under the stewardship of Prof. S.R. Dutta Gupta with a few teachers and a few rooms in the ground floor of the present building. It has since then gradually grown in size with both horizontal and vertical extension as well as the enlargement of faculty with young and energetic recruits, which permitted desired proliferation of its activities from basically teaching fundamental courses in Economics in the early years to include all the recent areas of this expanding science within its course curriculum.

Among the Departments of Economics in the eastern region, ours is the first to introduce a special course in Population Economics. In recent years, a number of innovative courses have been introduced in its Post-graduate curriculum; viz., Natural Resources and Environmental Economics, Input-Output Economics, Financial Economics, Comparative Economic Systems, World Development, Industrial Organizations, Computer Applications etc. These courses have created scope for further inter-disciplinary research and greater academic bonding with other departments in both Arts and Science Faculties as well as with institutions outside. These activities of the department have found resounding support in the recent model curriculum of University Grants Commission (UGC).
