About the department
The Department of economics was started in the year 1965 as part of the pre- degree course. When political science degree course started in the year 1972, department of Economics became a degree subsidiary department. The founder faculty includes Mr. EG Govindan Nampoothiri M.A and Mr.K.A Vishwanathan Nair M.A. The BA programme in political science includes "Principles of Economics" as a complementary subject. Due to de- linking of pre-degree and retirement of staff now the department has only one faculty member. The department has no separate library. Retired Faculty
