IGNOU MA Economics syllabus

IGNOU’s MA economics syllabus is curated to give you a deep understanding of economics and clarity of concepts over two years. IGNOU is a great option when it comes to distance education as pursuing any course from IGNOU, whether it is graduation, post graduation or masters, brings you at par with other regular candidates along with the freedom to apply for various exams like UPSC, SSC and IES as it is recognized by UGC-DEB and AICTE. Graduates from IGNOU are also eligible for jobs in both government and private sector making it like any other university without the hassle of actually going to the campus everyday. 

Each IGNOU MA Economics course has a certain number of credits, each of which is equal to 30 hours of student study time, including all instructional time. As a result, if a course has six credits assigned to it, the student must devote 180 hours to studying it.
