Department of History

The Dept of History got started in 1967, with a view to spread across the glorious splendor associated with the famous Nizam rule and British influence; a stunning spectacle of blend of Prussian and Indian Art and Culture. Though the conventional studies in Indian and World Histories were introduced initially, the department started two job-oriented subjects, Office management and Travel and Tourism Management.  History is considered by many as the queen of the social science studies. The curriculum covers the Ancient, Medieval and Modern Indian History along with European History from1789 – 1964 and also offers Andhra History from 1600AD to 1956 (the formation of States on the basis linguistic).
