Department of History

The history department at Shiv Nadar University is an ambitious teaching and research effort. The department’s existing strengths lie in social archaeology and the study of material pasts, intellectual history and histories of science, technology, environment and medicine (STEM). Within these broader themes and concerns, the history department proposes to develop a teaching and research orientation that aims towards strengthening the disciplinary practices of archaeology and history and takes up new and ever-exciting challenges of shaping historical sensibilities that are appropriate to a globalized and interconnected world.

BA History Major

The department will launch the BA Majors programme in History in August 2014. The BA History Major provides students with a basic grounding in the history of the Indian subcontinent, with the development of skills in research, interpretation and analysis that will be essential to students to obtain a thorough grounding for a Liberal Arts training. Students will be allowed to choose from a variety of departmental courses (e.g., Environmental History, Archaeology of South Asia, Introduction to Nomadic Pasts) and will have the opportunity to write an undergraduate dissertation in their Final Year. The Liberal Arts curriculum approach at the university will also allow students to take a number of courses from adjacent departments in Sociology, English, Economics, Art, Design and Performing Arts or the Natural Sciences, with the opportunity to take a Minor in these subjects. Interested students may consult the faculty for further details.
