The department is one of the oldest department in our college. It is introduced in 1968 itself. I am happy to say that our subject history is a much sought after subject in our College. Those who complete B.A. with history can take up any competitive exams and they can be recruited either in the administrative field or they can either continue their masters Degree, they can take up research work. Even they can opt B.Ed and join High school teaching etc. thus history subject has wider job opportunities. Our student  Mr. Shivadas  working as a lecturer in Polibetta college. Many students are working outside  Kodagu they have opted better placements. Iam happy to announce that the strength of our department is increasing year to year.

Two of our students  have joined Indian Army and they are dedicated to the nation.

HEP, HEK,H Eng P,HEG are the usual combination in our college.Those

Who opt these combinations they can take up any master degree courses & also can opt Social Service, even continue their studies in the field like MSW ,it has much wider horizons of job opportunities.

History is a subject of study helps the pupils to know about our nation our cultural heritage . It enables students to know the past of India Elaborately.
