TEACHING AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS IN THE GENERAL UNIVERSITIES OF BANGLADESH

This paper outlines the importance of teaching agricultural economics in Bangladesh, then makes a critical review of the syllabuses on the subject taught as a part of the curricula for under-and postgraduate degrees in economics offered by the four general universities in the country. It is concluded that the emphasis laid by different universities to the need for teaching agricultural economics is generally low and varied as reflected in the differences in curriculum, quality of teaching staff, reading materials and other supporting inputs. A greater emphasis on the subject is advocated and to materialise it, a number of suggestions are made.
