About Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi
Jamia Millia Islamia, an institution originally established at Aligarh in United Provinces, India in 1920 became a Central University by an Act of the Parliament of India in 1988. Jamia Millia means National University. The story of Jamia’s growth from a small institution in the pre-independent India to a central university located in New Delhi-offering integrated education from nursery to research in specialized areas – is a saga of dedication, conviction and vision of the people who worked against all odds and saw it growing step by step. They "built up the Jamia Millia stone by stone and sacrifice by sacrifice," said Sarojini Naidu, the nightingale of India. It has seven faculties namely, Faculty of Education, Faculty of social Sciences, Faculty of Humanities and Languages, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Architecture and Ekistics. Besides, its seven faculties, it has a number of centres of learning and research, like Mass Communication Research Centre (MCRC), Academy of Third World Studies etc. A large number of new research centres have also been set up recently.
About Department of Economics, JMI
Department of Economics is one of the oldest departments of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Department introduced its Bachelor’s Degree in 1971 and subsequently Masters Programme in 1977. A direct PhD programme is also offered. The course contents at Under- Graduate and Graduate levels are constantly updated to keep pace with the ever-expanding frontiers of knowledge. During the last decades the department has revised its courses, introduced new papers, updated the teaching skills of its faculty members and conducted workshops/seminars/conferences. Ours is one of the few departments in the country where teaching of computers was integrated with teaching of Economics way back in 1994.
The Department has a committed team of thirteen faculty members who specialize in International Finance, International Trade, Environmental Economics, Development Economics, Human Resource Economics, Agriculture and Rural Studies, Finance and Investment Analysis, Quantitative and Econometric Analysis and Computer Application in Economics. In recognition of its excellence and expertise we have also been granted the status of a resource centre for IT education by the University Grants Commission under the UGC sponsored project: Computer Application Programme to provide training to Research Scholars and Teachers in Econometric Software’s. Recently department has been granted assistance under UGC SAP.
In a short span of time the department has made its presence felt in a variety of professions. Some of our students have joined the Indian Civil Services, Indian Economic Services, Combined Defence Services, Banking Services, Academia and other Allied Services. Though the majority of them are in the established profession of teaching, yet recent trends show that our students are entering the emerging fields of print and electronic media, sales and marketing, advertising, administration and corporate sector. Some of our students are also working in advanced research centers / institutions, NGOs and foreign embassies.
