College of Economics & Social Development
This multidisciplinary undergraduate program combines two key social science disciplines, Economics and International Relations with Media, adding a third dimension that can result in a better appreciation of forces that affect our business and personal lives today. From an academic standpoint all three disciplines have evolved significantly in recent years. Economics today relies more on mathematical and statistical models for substantiation of its theoretical base, international relations has extended beyond its intellectual parameters to embrace real-world dynamics, and media studies having found an ally in science and technology, in this digital age.
The program includes core courses in the respective disciplines as well as current issues and hotly debated topics like food security, Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) versus organic farming, Political Economy Issues, Trade Roots and Economic Corridors, CPEC, etc. This will not only makes the courses interesting, but increases the marketability of the students.
The BS Economics, Media and International Relations (EMI) program will require students to complete 48 courses i.e. 144 credit hours of coursework. Internship of six weeks duration in a firm approved by the Institute is also obligatory.
