The department of history strives to better understand the common elements and the range of diversity among human societies. We do this by learning to listen to people from times and or places different from our own. As we become more familiar with the world as others have experienced it, we are better able to ask good questions, view events from multiple perspectives, and analyze changes and continuities in human communities across time and place.
History is a muse of all knowledge. It includes the local history, national history, world history and the history of civilization. So, in line with the university mission to provide instruction, research and dissemination of knowledge of the world, the department of history is committed to develop its capacity in a number of fields of historical studies. The students should, therefore, become useful citizens and intellectual engines of social change for the future. The department strives to ensure high quality teaching, strong research activity, valuable service to community and effective contribution to the development of the country emphasizing high level of professionalism and human values.
