Department Of History

History, as E. H. Carr had observed “is the dialogue between the past and the present.” The importance of the study of the history therefore becomes essential for each and every human seeking education because without the keen understanding of the past it becomes difficult to construct a strong present. The Department of History in Sadhan Chandra Mahavidyalaya effectively takes up the task of educating the present student as we believe that besides ensuring that our students obtain good grades in examinations, it is also our responsibility to nurture our students to become history conscious humans.
The Department of History of Sadhan Chandra Mahavidyalaya had started its journey in 2007, with the opening of the college, albeit as a pass course department. In the academic year 2009 -2010 the department started its honours course. In the year 2016-2017  and in the year 2017-2018, one student each had secured First Class Marks in the B.A (Hons) final examination. Each year, the Department organizes an excursion where the students are taken out to historical places for a day trip. Students are also encouraged to make presentation based on their experiences in those trips. Moreover, the students of the department, under the guidance of the teachers take out a wall magazine on various historical topics regularly. The Department also organizes student seminars where students selected by turn present papers on chosen topics.
The Department wishes prospective new students joining us in the new academic session the very best. We hope together we will have a remarkable and fulfilling journey ahead and both the students and the department shall flourish in the process.
