History Department


Department of History was established in 1970 to run undergraduate course and is thus one of the oldest departments of this college. Since 2006 Department of History is also running PG course under self-finance system. The Department encourages students to think beyond the simplistic reading of History as a sequence of events and coaches them to grapple with decoding larger historical processes so that they are well equipped to understand developments at the Glocal (global and local) level. An attempt is made to engage students with multiple perspectives on various historical themes and to enable them to analyse those perspectives critically. The exploration of past issues and of historical processes help students acquire necessary tools to tease out the underlying socio-political significations of the present and the past, of the mundane as well as the extraordinary.
