The department is offering conventional course in economics which include research

Inter University Centre, with special emphasis on financial economics. Financial economics

subjects are getting momentum. We are expecting heavy demand for the course and it is
proposed to start the course in June, 2015

Since the department is a research department, the scope of extension activities is limited.

action research on felt needs of the locality, participate in awareness programmes etc. The
faculty used to give extension lectures on various topics at different venues, particularly at
the grass root level.
