The Department of History, established in 1887, is one of the oldest departments in the College. Apart from a regular B.A. course in History, the department has been offering BA History vocational course with specialization in Archaeology and Museology at the undergraduate level from 1994. The department has arrangements with the Government Museum and the State Archives, to provide practical exposure to the students of the vocational course.
The syllabi of both the undergraduate and postgraduate courses are geared to equip students to face competitive exams such as the Civil Services and UGC NET / SLET. Keeping in tune with the changing times, the department has introduced papers of contemporary relevance like Gender Studies, Human Rights, International Relations, Indian Art, Historiography, Research Methodology, etc.
