Vision & Mission

With its inception from 1964, History has been one of the important disciplines taught in the college. The department of history of the college has been in the vanguard in promoting critical historical studies. Each year, a number of students from the department are admitted to postgraduate and research courses in various central and state universities. Far from being content with the laurels won in the past, the faculty of the department has constantly been in search of novel ways and means to serve the interests of the students as well as the society at large.

The department seeks to educate students in the complexities of historical inquiry, to develop their critical thinking skills, and to improve their understanding of the world around them.
