Programme Details

Introduction

 

History is a chronological record of significant past events often including an explanation of their causes. It is a branch of knowledge that records and explains past events. All that happens in the world has a cause and events could not have happened differently unless there was a different cause. Learning from other people’s mistake is one significant aspect of studying history, but there are dozens more. Knowing the history of a culture, how it developed, how beliefs were formed, how social structure came to where it is today, help us to understand why that culture is the way they are today. It helps in understanding others’ prejudice and hatred, and promotes acceptance and peace. It also teaches us how to compare the work of experts and how to evaluate primary and secondary structure of evidence. As a result, it is very important in our day to day life or as a profession because everything has a history.

 

Objectives

 

The M.A. Programme is designed to make students analyse the events in history. It is not all memorization but an explanation of their (the events) causes shows that there are additional levels such as comprehension and analysis. Our main stress will be to look at history as a big picture. By this method, we no longer have to measure history, but think of history as a fluid process in which events and trends are inextricably intertwined. So the main objective of M.A programme is to make students analyse and comprehend the events in history in an unbiased and intellectual way.
