The Department of Economics, the first department within Faculty of Social Sciences, was established in 1967. Initially, it offered M.Sc. degree program which was later consolidated with introduction of M.Phil. and Ph.D. programs in 1978 and 1987 respectively. After more than four decades of public service and nation building, the Department of Economics transformed into the School of Economics (SOE) and launched the BS Economics Undergraduate 4 Years program in 2010. It is worth mentioning that School of Economics was pioneer in launching BS 4 Year undergraduate program at Quaid-i-Azam University.
