    Courses and Taught

    The Department of HISTORY offers B.A. History Programme courses under the CBCS /CBCS-LOCF scheme:
    The B.A. History Programme course is interdisciplinary keeping in mind that specialisation in History is the key to access cognate skills from other disciplines. With its mix of
    • Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses AECC (2)
    • Core (4)
    • Discipline Specific Electives DSE (2)
    • Skill Enhancement Courses SEC (4)
    • Skill Enhancement Courses SEC (4)
    • In addition to B.A. (Programme), the B.A (Honours) students are offered History as a Generic Elective option in the 1st and 2nd year.
    It provides multiple points where students can participate in inter-disciplinary reflections on cross-cutting themes.
    The duration of the BA History Programme is three academic years. Each academic year is divided into two semesters. The B.A. History Programme, therefore, spans six semesters. Each semester is for sixteen weeks. The teaching and learning modalities in the B.A. History Programme will involve theory classes (lectures) of one hour each and tutorial classes. There are additional requirements in certain courses for documentaries, cinema, field and archival work, visits to museums, class reports, discussions and project work. The curriculum includes Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses (AECC), one each in semesters 1 and 2. The AECC courses are of four credits each. Please note that AECC courses are not in history. The two courses are AECC 1, English/ Hindi/ Urdu Communication, and AECC 2, Environmental Sciences. The further curriculum includes majors in Core Courses (CCs), of which four Core Courses are in the discipline of History while the remaining are from other subjects in which the B.A. Programme student is enrolled. A student of B.A. History Programme would also need to complete two Discipline Specific Elective Courses (DSEs) in History, and two Inter-disciplinary Generic Electives offered by cognate disciplines. Each of the Core Courses, Discipline Specific Elective Courses and Generic Elective Courses are of six credits each. The B.A. History Programme also includes minors in four discipline-centred Skill Enhancement Courses, with each of these four courses carrying four credits. BA Programme students of a non-history stream and students of B.Com Programme can also opt for the History courses specifically designed in lieu of M.I.L. These courses are of six credits and are offered in the first/ second and third/fourth Semester.
