BA Economics

Economics is about choice and the impact of our choices on each other. It relates to every aspect of our lives, from the decisions we make as individuals or families to the structures created by governments and firms. The economic way of thinking can help us make better choices. An undergraduate degree in economics seeks to educate students about how choices are made by consumers, workers, and firms, and how these decisions aggregate into economy-wide phenomena. At the same time, one should remember that Economics is not primarily a collection of facts to be memorised, though there are plenty of important concepts to be learned. Instead, economics is better thought of as a collection of questions to be answered or puzzles to be worked out. Most important, economics provides the tools to work out those puzzles. Learning about economics helps you understand the major problems facing the world today, prepares you to be a good citizen, and helps you become a well-rounded thinker.

The Bachelor’s degree Programme in Economics aims to provide theoretical and practical knowledge that makes accurate analysis of the economic situation possible. The Calicut University Economics graduates must be able to understand the interrelation between the economy and society; to consider economic problems from a global perspective and take a local approach to solving them; to make connections between an economic system’s different components; to gauge the implications of decisions related to economic policy; and to respond to the economic problems arising from society in general and the different units that interact therein (e.g. institutions, private companies and sectors of the economy). The curriculum covers topics from expanding markets to the impact of 2008 global financial crisis. It provides an excellent background for those who plan careers in government and private enterprise as well as those pursuing graduate degrees in professional schools or in the field of economics.
