Economics
Economics is the study of how individuals, organizations, and societies deal with scarcity. The economics curriculum develops tools and uses them to analyse a wide range of societal problems, and also to study the role of the government in solving these problems. Thus the economics course is designed to provide a broad understanding of economic and political problems in the national and world economy. The programme aims at providing knowledge on fundamental concepts and theoretical propositions, understanding of the institutions- social, political and economic that influence economic issues, to give students an exposure to the economic problems and issues and preparing graduates for careers in government, business, labour, research and education.

English literature (Optional English)
English has been an integral part of various walks of life in India for centuries. One might even say that it has become inseparable from the essence of contemporary Indian culture. The study of language is a key to attain an understanding the history of any age. The three-year English Literature course, also known as Optional English, offers students an opportunity to understand the literary, cultural and social dynamism of England's varied past, European and Non-European writing and integrates Indian writing in English facilitating a transcendence of linguistic nativism.

The glory of a bygone era is obviously of no use unless it can be utilized to enlighten the present. On the practical side, this course offers numerous employment opportunities in the field of teaching, journalism, publishing, writing, etc. Most importantly, a sound understanding of the language equips the student with communication skills, which is an indispensable part of success in any field in today’s competitive world.
