Department of History:


Ever since the inception of our college, in 1964, the Department of History has been its proud and integral part. History has always been a popular subject with the students of the Arts stream in our college and at least 80% of B.A. General students opt for History in their three-year course. Further, from its very introduction in 1996, the available Honours seats remain almost filled up every session by students eager to join History Honours. In order to promote teaching-learning activities, the faculty uses audio-visual aids, arranges workshops, seminars, special lectures, documentary shows, encourages students' presentation, has a wall magazine 'Historia' and arranges excursions to places of historical interest every session. The subject offers understanding of past to understand present and inculcates informative, pedagogical, ethical and nationalistic values into the society.
