            Since from the inception of the college in 1967, History was offered as a subject in PUC level. The inauguration of U.G Course in History in the academic year 1971-72 being the first degree course to be started in this college, marked an important step in the growth of this Department. Students were taught both in English and Tamil medium. Two classes of 35 students each were started. Every year the department is producing nearly 70 graduates with skills.
            To meet the demands of the people in this area. P.G. Course in History was initiated in 1980 student strength of 10 and at present it has increased 20. Both U.G and P.G students have produced cent percent results with university rank holders.
            In 1997, the department entered into a new realm of Research by the introduction of M.Phil course with 5 students. Due to shortage of permanent teaching faculties, the course temporarily winded up in 2007.
            The Department was reached with the introduction of vocational education at the UG degree level. It took shape with the Inauguration of ‘Archaeology and Museology’ in 1988-99. The Department takes the pride of being the First department to adopt vocational course in this college and also to secure cent percent result throughout. It’s a known fact, due to the shortage of permanent teaching faculty the course temporarily winded up in 2007.
