Department of History

About the Department
People across time and space have pondered the meaning of the past. Here at PSMO College, the study of history has been a cornerstone of the curriculum since its founding, although, appropriately, the Department’s areas of focus, syllabus, and educational strategies have changed over time. Department of History is one among the prestigious departments at PSMO College established in 1972, changed into a postgraduate department in 1984 and became a research department in 2013.
Regularly ranked among the top History Departments at Calicut University, we combine prolific, cutting-edge research with dedicated, creative teaching and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The History degree allows you to explore the past from many different angles, as well as the interaction between History and other disciplines, including Political Science, Gender Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, Economics and Archaeology. Viewing History through political and economic lenses as well as cultural, social and intellectual ones allows you to investigate practically any aspect of History which interests you.
