Established in 1966, our Department is one of the oldest in the University of Kashmir. The major objectives of our Department are to impart quality education to its students from all sections of the society, to conduct innovative and empirical research on various aspects of J&K economy, to provide policy inputs to the government and help in the economic development of the state and to supply skilled human resource to various organizations at national / state level.

M.A, M.Phil and Ph.D are the three academic programmes offered by our Department.

Admission to M. A. Programme is strictly based on entrance test.  M. A. Programme consists of four Semesters, with five courses in each semester. Present Syllabus consists of 26 courses including 18 core courses. Based on inputs from students, scholars and internal as well as external experts, four major revisions in syllabus have been made since 2000. The latest revision (2010) was incorporated mainly to boost the performance of our students in competitive examinations. Certain new Courses have also been introduced: These are Mathematics for Economics, J & K Economy, Research Methodology, Economics of Health and Education, and Project Work. We give top priority to our P.G Programme and there are five hours of class work per day for six days a week. Departmental Seminars/ Discussions are regular feature of our Academic Plan.

Admission to M. Phil Programme is strictly based on entrance test. M. Phil Programme consists of four components: Research Methodology, Subject Variation Paper, Dissertation and viva-voce. Double Evaluation system is strictly followed in case of Research Methodology and Subject Variation Papers. Like M.A. Programme there is regular class work on Research Methodology. Seminars/Presentations are prerequisite for submission of dissertations / theses. Open Viva-voce is in vogue in our department. The thrust area of research is Jammu and Kashmir Economy. Much of the research work has been concentrated on sectors like Agriculture and Allied activities, Handicrafts, Tourism, Social Sector, Poverty Alleviation Schemes and Human Development. For Ph. D. Programme it is a prerequisite for a candidate to clear M. Phil. with at least overall ‘B’ grade...More
