Department of History


Departmental History

History is amongst the earliest subject that was introduced in Government Degree College for Women Baramulla. Right from its inception a good number of students have been opting for this subject because of its interesting nature, academic significance and relevance for various competitive exams. The fundamental idea under which this department is working right now is to inculcate a true historical sense in our students and inculcate in them the habit of having an unbiased approach whenever they read anything related to our past, knowing well that only a proper understanding of the past can help us in building a progressive future. We in the department try our utmost to inculcate in our students the habit of reading from primary sources and it’s for this very reason that history section of College library is always updated with new, latest and authentic books. Also in order to give practical experience to our students we take them on historical tours so as to familiarise them with our past and make past interesting for them.
