The History Department administers three degree Programmes – the MA, M.Phil and PhD. Upon completion, students can transit from one programme to the next or they can take any of these as a terminal degree. Our MA, M.Phil and Ph.D courses aim at training students to critically analyse the social environment in which they live and become self aware and responsible citizens. Ours is the largest History Department in India with the richest spread of MA courses in South Asian and World History. The admission of the candidates to the M.Phil. Programme /Ph.D. Programme is governed by the Ordinance VI and its amendments of the University of Delhi.
