The Department of Economics is a department in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The Department conducts courses leading to the degrees of B.A. and B.Soc.Sci. (Hons) in Economics. Postgraduate programmes are also available for Master of Social Sciences and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

The discipline of Economics is the key to an understanding and analysis of economies and their constituent components.
