Economics and Political Science

Department of Economics and Political Science

The department of Economics had its beginning right from the inception of the college itself in 1964, with the first batch of humanities. The Department became fully functional in 1968, when the college was upgraded to a senior institution.

The first Principal Rev. Msgr. Peter Uralil, who was incharge of the department, gave it the impetus to develop further. In 1968, with the starting of the BA Degree Programme in Economics, the full-fledged, under graduate Department of Economics came into existence with Rev. Dr. Simon Kottoor as the HOD. So far 49 Batches of under graduate students passed out from this department.  The department has a strong Alumni Association. A number of academic and non-academic programmes are conducted every year for the all-round development of our students. From 2011 onwards the department has been conducting a certificate course in Human Rights and Duties Education with the sponsorship of the UGC. From 2016 onwards the department began conducting PSC coaching for students of the college aimed at equipping them for competitive examinations.  At present, Sri. Prince Joseph, (HOD), Sri. Thomas K C, Ms. Kajal Maria Tom (Guest) and Mr. Arun Raveendran (Guest) are the faculties serving in the department.
