History is a very dynamic field of study that includes the past, present, and future. It examines the present in light of the past with an eye toward the future. The study of history allows one to become more sensitive to the complexities of the present. This, in turn, shapes the students' minds for a broader and more complete understanding of the world around them. History not only covers the evolution of mankind from the past to the present, but also the cultural evolution of various arts, and human relations within and outside the community. Furthermore, it discusses state formations, nation building, colonial struggles, freedom movements, world wars, globalisation, and other topics in both the Indian and global contexts. Along with Mass Media, History students can pursue careers in teaching, publishing, administrative services, archaeology, mass media etc.
