Department of History

The Department of History at Shiv Nadar University is unique in being able to offer two separate streams of Undergraduate courses in the history and archaeology of South Asia. The research interests of faculty include fields as diverse as the History of Medicine, Visual Histories, Museum Studies, the History of Marginalized Communities, Social History, and Ancient Technology. This diversity forms the basis of a cutting-edge programme that goes beyond mere chronological and area surveys to expose students to a variety of creative approaches to understanding the past.

The Undergraduate programme in History is structured as a graduated learning programme. Students choose from a range of Core and Elective Courses and have the opportunity to write an undergraduate dissertation in their Final Year. Courses are taught in such a way as to enable the development of skills in writing, research, analysis, and quantitative reasoning that are essential for a comprehensive liberal arts education. Some of the Archaeology courses are structured for hands-on learning of field methods and are useful in bringing together students of the natural sciences, engineering and the social sciences. In classes, the past comes alive in various ways: through the hands-on study of artefacts, looking at maps, watching movies and documentaries, investigating archaeology “in the making” on the campus, going on field visits, and through numerous discussions.

The Department believes in continuous assessment and interactive learning, whether in the class or field or library. The Liberal Arts curriculum approach at the university allows students to take a number of courses from adjacent departments in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, such as Sociology, English, Economics, Art, Design and Performing Arts or from the School of Natural Sciences, with the opportunity to take a Minor in any of these subjects.

Interested students may consult the faculty for further details.
