Economics

The First Postgraduate Department of St. Michael’s College had its humble beginning in 1967 with a Pre-Degree programme in Social Sciences.The Bachelor Degree in Economics was inducted in 1978. This programme earned a wide acclaim in a short span of time. The department also expanded its horizon by taking up Master’s Programme in Analytical Economics with unique optionals; Econometrics and Industrial Economics. Later in 2001, Semesterisation of the PG course took place and consequently, the scheme was restructured. Today the activities of the department lend an inimitable source of strength for the college.
