History

The University Department of History was established in 1973 as P.G. Centre and Department of History of Ranchi University at Hazaribag, It assumed Independent status as P.G. Department of History, VinobaBhave University of Hazaribag in 1992. This is the largest department of VinobaBhave University and as such it enjoys the privilege of being the oldest Department of the University along with the P.G. Department of Economics. From 1973 till the completion of the building for social science of V.B.U. it functioned and managed its classes in St. Columba’s College, Hazaribag and other “make shift” venues as determined by the University. Presently the department is situated in the ground floor of RabindraNath Tagore Bhawan (Arts Block) sprawling through its left flank. In this socio-economically backward region of North Chhotanagpur, it caters to the common man’s aspiration for higher studies. The department with largest numerical strength of the students speaks a lot about the popularity of the subject and accessibility of the students to qualitative higher education through this department. This is not a coincidence that the History Department of V.B.U has produced maximum number of doctorates in comparison to any other department. The maximum no. of registered Ph.D. Research Scholars is testimony to this fact of vibrant research activities.  U.G.C sponsored National Seminar on 1857 Movement in Jharkhand and International Seminar on “Religion, Ethnicity and Resistance” are only few examples of the dynamism and lively existence of the Department. The teaching quality is ensured by a strong and dedicated team of Department’s Faculty members, Retired Guest Teachers, Inspired Scholarships and substantial number of Fellowship for SCs/STs scholars supported by the Department.
