The purpose of studying economics is not to acquire a set of ready-made answers to economic questions, but to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists.
– Joan Robinson

About the Department

Economics is one of the evergreens and widely acclaimed subjects because of its high utility and huge demand in the job markets. Economics, at its core, is the study of how to evaluate alternatives and make better choices. It develops critical-thinking and problem-solving skills to make good decisions. It develops analytical skills to examine data to support good decisions. These skills are desired across careers in the public and private sectors. It has been consistently witnessed that employers want the skills gained from studying economics—the ability to make decisions, solve problems, obtain and process information, analyze data, and write and speak effectively.
The Department of Economics, SukantaMahavidyalaya, Dhupguri, Jalpaiguri, was established in 1981. The programmes offered by the Department are designed to provide a general understanding of the functioning of the economic system and the role of institutions, groups, and regions within that system. It also endeavours to prepare the student for employment in the industry, professions, and government, or to pursue graduate work toward advanced degrees in economics or related fields.
But we are facing a serious problem of student’s shortage. Due to lack of proper awareness, guardians did not admit their children at our department with respect to government job opportunities. With this, students did not waste their valuable time. Therefore, after passing the HS, they are taking the economics related subjects like BBA, Costing etc which are marketable at the private globalized market.
The department offers Economics as a main subject in BA. Programme course, wherein the students study Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Economic Development and Policy for India etc. In addition to this, department also offers BA. (Hons.), and BSc (Hons.) was started in 2000.Very few students took admission in B.Sc. (Hons) during this period and completed the course successfully with a good marks.
