DEPARTMENT OF HISTORICAL STUDIES

In the academic year 1967-68, the B.A., Degree Course in History with a sanctioned strength of 40 students was introduced with Tamil as the medium of instruction. An English medium section with a similar strength was started in 1971.

In 1974, Evening College in B.A., History was begun to benefit the working women in North Chennai. As years went by, to meet the growing demand, a second batch in Tamil Medium was started with the same strength in 1993.

PG Course was introduced in 1998 and in the same year autonomy was also granted. Hence, the curriculum was suitably changed to meet the challenging needs of the society. Subjects of Regional, National, Asian and International importance and job-oriented subjects were offered. Minimizing political history, emphasis was made on cultural heritage, national integration and the socio-economic aspects of society.
M.Phil Course was introduced in the year 2012 and in 2013 autonomy was granted. At present 10 students are admitted.

The Department is producing 144 undergraduates and almost centum percentages of Post-graduates every year. The Department functions with 12 faculty members, 8 with Doctorate degree and 4 others with M.Phil qualification and at present 3 of them are pursuing for their Ph.D., Degree. Also, 3 faculty members are guiding Scholars who are pursuing Ph.D., Degree in Part Time.

As Research was emphasized by the NAAC, our Faculty members presented research papers at the Regional, State, National and International level Conferences. Books and Journals are also being authored and published by the faculty. Since the updating of syllabus became necessary after completion of 5 years, the curriculum was restructured with the introduction of new papers like Archaeology, Public Administration, Archival keeping, History of Chennai, History of Ideas etc.
