The discipline of History helps us construct our past. History uses evidential reasoning by critically examining source materials to demonstrate what happened. The syllabus covers both Indian and World history from antiquity to the contemporary period. The teaching methodology is interdisciplinary with a hands-on approach. The faculty uses audio-visual aids to make class lectures interesting. Students are encouraged to go beyond the textbooks in their projects and presentations. While academia and school teaching are obvious career options for History students, there is a wider horizon for those trained in this discipline. Administration, fashion, journalism, film and drama, tourism, think tanks, and social work are some viable career alternatives. Besides, students could also embark on highly specialized courses after graduating in History like archaeology, numismatics, epigraphy, Indology, museology, archival studies and art conservation, preservation and management.
