About the Department


The History department, one of the earliest departments of our college caters to the needs of society by producing responsible citizens with spirit of enquiry, inclusiveness, brotherhood and secularism. The Under Graduate B. A. (History) Course was started in 1967 later it was upgraded as a Post Graduate Department in 1974 with the introduction of M. A. (History) Course. The department became a full-fledged research department with the introduction of M. Phil. (Part-Time) and Ph. D. (Full-Time & Part-Time) courses in 1993 and 1997 respectively. The department was nurtured and developed by accomplishing stalwarts like Prof. T. V. Srinivasan, Prof. Mirza Abdul Majid, Prof. N. C. Krishna Raja, Prof. Md. Tajuddin, Prof. M. Saleemuddin, Dr. N. Tahir Ahmed, Dr. Major I. B. Syed Shahabuddeen, Prof. P. R. Md. Saifullah, Dr. K. Mohanasundaram, Prof. M. Md. Suhail and Dr. R. Sheikh Hameed. The department has a legacy of organising seminars and conferences regularly. The successful hosting of the Sixth Annual Session of Tamil Nadu History Congress Session in 1999 was a milestone in the achievements of the department. The department has henceforth regularly organised many National seminars related to Freedom Movement, Socio-Economic Developments in Vellore region, Secularism, Tourism Prospects, Development of Educational Institutions and Role of Intellectuals and Ideologues in Social development.The department has published four highly valued proceedings as a result of these seminars. The department has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Deccan History Society, Hyderabad and Cercle Culturel des Pondicheriens, ORSAY, France to organise joint guest lectures, seminars and conferences related to South India. The department is equipped with young and energetic staff members working towards a better understanding and comprehension of objective history among the youth, enriching the field of history by publishing research papers and articles regularly.
