BSc (Honours) Economics and Politics
The Politics and Economics Major provides a strong base to those who intend to develop a knowledge of the political economy. The Politics and Economics programme is a carefully constructed major that provides students the opportunity to study two disciplines as well as areas that cut across traditional departmental and disciplinary lines. Through courses developed and taught by Economics and Political Science faculty, students examine the globalised world using a variety of conceptual lenses supplied by the social sciences, learn multiple ways of solving problems, and explore areas of inquiry that intersect traditional disciplines. The courses in Politics help students understand the dynamics of political systems, how they affect international relations and how they support a nation, thus realising their responsibility to the society and the country. The study of Economics prepares students to take part in governmental policy making and changes in economic systems. Economics study not only impacts the individuals but also contributes to the society at large.
