The University of Delhi introduced the Undergraduate Curriculum Framework (UGCF), based on National Education Policy (2020), from the Academic Session 2022-23.
B.A.(Hons.) Economics is a 4-year full-time undergraduate degree course spread over eight semesters, the admission to which is through a Common University Entrance Test (CUET). The curriculum offers a rigorous basis for much of the advanced thinking in the Economics discipline. It provides the student with a logical paradigm for conceptualising and interpreting the behaviour and interactions of households, firms, and government institutions. It allows students to choose elective courses from a set of courses with contemporary relevance, thereby offering them the flexibility to prepare for careers in academia, law, management, journalism, government, and many other fields. The program is consistent with global standards in the field of Economics and offers training comparable to that of an undergraduate student at the world’s best universities.
The Economics Department provides a stimulating environment for a thorough understanding of a range of subjects -Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Mathematical Methods for Economics, Statistical Methods for Economics, Econometrics, Financial Economics, International Economics, Development Economics, Indian Economics, Public Economics, Behavioural Economics, and other branches of Economic Theory. Besides the core subjects, a student has to choose a requisite number of credit courses from a pool of Discipline Specific Electives (DSEs), Generic Elective Courses, Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC), Ability Enhancement Courses (AEC) and Value Addition Courses (VAC).
