Programme Specific Outcome
The BA Honours History Programme is organised to provide the greatest flexibility to its students. There are Core Disciplinary papers that provide the fundamental knowledge in the discipline of history and in the study of the History of India and the World. The programme is otherwise envisaged to provide a large amount of choice so that students can tailor their education on the basis of their interests. These provide not just skills in history but also vital skills in other disciplines.
At a general level, our courses are structured with the objective of giving requisite information about different aspects of the past to students, to teach them how to parse this information, instruct them on how historians research, frame an argument and debate details that have significance to how we understand the past and the present. The expected outcome is to provide students with a sense of how interconnected our present is with the past and how learning about the past provides them with the skills to understand the present.
It is expected that on completion of the course students would have to acquire the skills of critical thinking, rational enquiry, effective communication, and exploring the relationship between past, present and historiography.
