B.A. (Hons.) History and International Relations program has been specifically designed to reflect the belief that a proper understanding of history, apart from being indispensable to an educated individual, should embrace some perspectives from related disciplines in humanities, hence its combination with the field of International Relations. The program also embraces other aspects of Humanities, Social Sciences and other Natural Sciences. It examines the global evolution of international relations, with an emphasis on in-depth historical studies supported by political and sociological analysis.
In addition to the intellectual alertness that arises from the knowledge of history, students will also acquire balanced judgement in readiness for research, administrative and managerial responsibilities. Students also acquire the awareness on how the realities of our contemporary world necessitate new insights into the main political, social and economic forces that have shaped specific historical events and also how these historical events and other factors have enhanced or impeded world historical development.
