The Department of History has made long strides since its inception, and in the last two decades, it has been conspicuous for its teaching and research achievements. Two notable programs, M.A. in History and Heritage Managements (five year integrated), and M.A., in Ancient History and Archeology, have been introduced in the department, and are well-received. During 2007-2012, twenty two researchers have earned their Ph.D degrees, 76 researchers have got their M.Phil degrees and the same research pursuit continues in the department. The faculty have published 169 research papers in both national and international journals. One international seminar and five national seminars have been organized by the department.
