The study of Economics provides insights into decision-making, market outcomes, and the functioning of the overall economy. … By combining coursework in Economics and Political Science, students gain an interdisciplinary perspective important to understanding both political and economic issues. The Economics and Political Science program of Galala University is intended to familiarize students with the discipline of economic thinking and to equip them for an intelligent appraisal of contemporary economic problems. It is also intended to make students aware of the nature of economic science, and of the directions in which economic theory is moving.
