Masters Degree Program


The Masters Degree Program (M.A./M.Sc.) in Economics follows a 4-Semesters (2-years) Choice-Based Credit System (with an enrolment capacity of 55 students per year/session). Applications for admission are normally invited by the University during May-June and admission is given in the month of August every year. The program starts in the first week of August. University examinations are held in December and July. In the 2nd and the 3rd semesters, some courses are open for choice within and across the departments. A successful candidate must earn 72 credit points.
 
The entire P.G. Syllabus of Economics is spread over in four semesters consisting of 72 Units of which 60 Units are assigned to the Core Courses and the remaining 12 Units are open courses. Each Unit carries a weight of One Credit. The Department decides every year to offer any one or more out of the various open courses listed for Semester-II and Semester-III. Out of the open courses, 4 Units in Semester-II and 8 Units in Semester-III are required to be chosen by the students from the list(s) of open courses either offered by the Department of Economics or any other Department in the University on the advice of student advisor(s) appointed by the Department from time to time.
