History

Department of History

History encompasses a very dynamic range of study i.e. past, present and future. It analyses the present in the light of the past with a view to the future. The study of History provides an opportunity to know the complexities of the present with greater sensitivity. This, in turn, shapes the mind of the students for broader and better understanding of the world around them. History not only covers the biological evolution of mankind from about 5 million years ago till date, but also covers the cultural evolution in terms of evolution of architecture, painting, sculpture, music, dance, drama, human relations within community and outside. Besides, it covers inter alia state formations, nation building, colonial struggles, freedom movements, world wars, globalization, etc , both in the context of India and the world. Students get the opportunity to have a career in various fields viz, Teaching, Publishing, Administrative Services, Archaeology, Mass Media, and Travel and Tourism along with Journalism.
