History was introduced in the Pre-Degree level as the fifth group(Indian History,World History and English Literature) and served as a subsidiary group for B.A.Literature. It was under the able incentive of our former principal, Sr. Emeline that the undergraduate course in History was started in 1993.
The study of history is not merely about facts,but a way to throw light on various facets of past by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. Our department aims to sensitise students about past by narration,open discussions,interpretations and challenging existing thoughts.Besides covering traditional topics, department also focuses on including new areas of interest in history including environmental history,local history,gender history,subaltern studies,history of science,folklore studies etc.Our students have brought laurels to college in the form ranks in university examinations and medals in national and state competitions.
