DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS

 

The Department of Economics started its journey from the very beginning of the establishment of the college in 1970 with four students. Initially, it was a department comprising students belonging to the Arts or Humanities stream. Gradually, the door was opened to the students of the science stream also and from then on the seats were divided between the students of the Arts stream without Mathematics and those of the Science stream with Mathematics. At present,BA (Honours) and BSc (Honours) degrees are offered for the students with Science combination subjects and Arts combination subjects respectively.

Since the beginning, the department has been enriched by teachers, who excelled in the national and the international arena. The same is true for the students who have performed brilliantly in the university (Burdwan University) examinations. Several students of the department have obtained rank in the final examinations, with many emerging as university toppers. Manyof them have got admitted in institutes of national importance like the Delhi School of Economics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Mumbai University, Gokhale Institute of Economics and Politics, Pune etc. apart from the Calcutta University. This department has produced good administrators, professors, school teachers, bank employees, corporate leaders and industrial officials.
