The History department of this college was established in 1968. The department is engaged in teaching History courses for different honours and program courses. The Department of History has dedicated, qualified and competent faculty members who are constantly making an endeavor to enhance teaching standards. In order to sensitize the students of History, the Department undertakes a number of academic activities outside the classroom.

Depending on the resources occasionally the students are also taken on historical trips outside the city of Delhi, namely, Agra and Jaipur. The Department takes its students for Heritage Walks and this has been made a regular academic exercise. These walks expose the students to social milieu of the communities around the college. It also exposes the students to the challenges of historical management. Visit to the museum/archives introduces the students to primary sources which lays the foundation for their future research endeavours. The power of visual presentation including film is used by the Department to go beyond the class-room lectures. Cinema as a powerful tool of the social change is also considered important medium for the students of history. Eminent scholars of national repute are invited to address the students.

The Department has an active History Association “GATHA”. Every year office bearers are elected who perform their work diligently. Our students also participate in competitions in other colleges. The Department organizes “Gender Workshops” conducted by reputed NGOs like “Jagori”at regular intervals.
