Mary Matha Arts & Science College

Profile of Social Science Department

Social Science- Economics is a new generation course which fulfils the demands of a modern world. Disciplinary approaches transform into multidisciplinary and Trans disciplinary, as the world around us grows complex in nature. It is in such a context that this course gains its unique significance. Through this course, students will be able to analyse and understand the world of activities around them in a holistic manner.

Here, students will study Economics as the main subject, and political science and history as complementary papers which is very essential to understand the functioning of economic activities. Economics affects our daily lives in both obvious and subtle ways. From an individual perspective, economics frames many choices we have to make about work, leisure, consumption and even how much to save. So understanding economics is very essential in our daily life because knowingly or unknowingly all of us engage in one or other economic activity.

Multi-faceted opportunities for an Economics graduate are on the rise. Apart from tremendous career opportunities, there is enough scope for internships with reputable universities and institutions. This course will equip the students to specialise in Economics, History and Political Science, turning a novice passive citizen into an informed and responsible member of the society.
