Welcome to the History Department where you can explore the past and shape your future. The College introduced History as a main subject of study at the UG level in the year 1999. The study of History is inescapable because the past causes the present and so the future. History courses teach the analytical, interpretive, and writing knowledge and skills necessary for understanding the connections between past and present. History is a pragmatic discipline in which the analysis of change over time involves sifting the influences and perspectives that affect the course of events, and evaluating the different forms of evidence historians exploit to make sense of them. When we study History reasonably well, we acquire some usable habits of mind, as well as some basic data about the forces that affect our own lives; we emerge with relevant skills and an enhanced capacity for informed citizenship, critical thinking, and simple awareness.
