BS Economics

The focus of our 4-year undergraduate degree program is to equip students with the skills necessary to evaluate policy proposals logically and to carry out simple statistical investigations essential to succeed in their future academic and professional endeavors. The program consists of 130 credit hours. Major disciplines of economics have 75 credit hours each. The remaining 55 credits are for university core courses and courses from other disciplines like social sciences, management and accounting. In the first year you take compulsory courses on economic theory, mathematics and statistics, and have the opportunity to take some optional courses, whereas in your second and third year you will take compulsory core courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics. Most final-year courses familiarize you to a chosen field of interest and a research project which enables our students to apply the quantitative tools learnt in the program to real world economic and social problems. Our each course is mainly based on a lecture series, wherein you will learn how to put economic models together, how to undertake quantitative analysis, and, potentially, formulate your own model to address a new problem.

The medium of instruction at our department is English for all degree programmes offered. Assessments are accepted in English only. Assessment takes two forms. Firstly, during semester monitoring of your work in a particular course provides feedback aimed at improving your understanding and technique. Secondly, unseen written examinations at the end of each semester assess your learning and achievement and contribute towards your final degree.
