In most Universities, economics is usually the most popular subject of all social sciences. The economics has the sound theoretical base and practical utility in day to day life. Therefore, economics is the study of how societies, governments, businesses, households, and individuals allocate their scarce resources to maximize their profits or utility. This discipline has two important features. First, we develop conceptual models of behavior to predict responses to changes in policy and market conditions. Second, we use rigorous statistical analysis to investigate these changes. The complementary study of econometrics, the primary quantitative method used in the discipline, enables students to become critical consumers of statistically based arguments about numerous public and private issues rather than passive recipients. The study of economics can also provide valuable knowledge for making decisions in everyday life. Economic students can find employment in teaching and research, government departments, international organizations, industry, Banking and research in higher education.

Study in the liberal arts and social sciences is fundamental to a high quality of life. It is not only helps us to become more culturally and intellectually alive but also prepares us to earn a living. Perhaps that is why so many people in leadership positions in business and industry, in public life and social service have degrees in liberal arts and social sciences.
