In a country like ours where cultural linguistic and religious diversities are replete, studying history is imperative to preserve the integrity of the society and the nation. Study of history is essential for understanding the individual’s placing in respect to the wider world. Reading history helps us to discover the linkages of the present day with that of the past thus developing a logical, analytical faculty that helps us to appreciate or criticize occurrences as they happen or as they have happened.
The Department of History started its journey in 2005 as a pass subject and in 2009 the honours course started. The Department strives to inculcate among the students a proper sense of history and an analytical mind. Going beyond the traditional lecture based class room teaching, the students are encouraged to visit libraries to acquaint themselves with books of eminent authors and organize peer learning sessions that offer them a chance to exchange ideas and thoughts. ICT tools are used to make the teaching-learning process more interesting. The Department also has its own separate book bank for the benefit of the students.At Present there are one UGC full timer, two contractual and one part time.
After completing the graduation in History, the students stand to benefit for various examinations like the SCHOOL SERVICE COMMISSION, COLLEGE SERVICE COMMISSION, and various other COMPETITIVE EXAMINATIONS.
