Department of Economics
St Agnes College was the first Women's College not only on the West Coast but also in the whole of South India. The Economics Department of St. Agnes College has the privilege of being the oldest department dating back to the foundation of the college in 1921 when it was affiliated to the Madras University. Economics was one of the subjects offered in all the combinations in the humanities strain as women whose only career option then was teaching opted mostly for Economics and History. With the reorganizations of States, the college and the department under it had to move from Madras to Dharwad, Mysore and finally Mangalore University.

- First to start Mathematical Economics

- Autonomy has motivated the Department to not only think creatively but also materialize the creative thoughts.
