Department of History

The importance of the discipline of History in Social Sciences can hardly be overemphasized. While making the students familiar with the study of the past, the study of History also instills within them the skill of dealing with the current complexities in human society in the context of the experiences gained through the study of the past. Human society continues to be shaped by the contest between primordialism with evolving theories of human progress- which is studied through historic periodisations within the discipline. This enables a student to better understand the present dynamics in society. 

Given the evolutionary nature of the discipline in present times significant care has been given to emphasise the multidisciplinary character of the subject. The proposed course plans to cover major areas of global history while giving special emphasis to the evolution of India’s indigenous history. Undertaking this course, thus, would equip the students with knowledge and skills being demanded in higher education everywhere. Apart from academics or government services, the students undertaking this course could also opt for a successful career in tourism and culture oriented service sector.
