Knowledge of history is indispensable to understand who we are and where we fit in this world. History helps us to understand people, societies, economies, states, nations, ideas, and cultures all around the world. Also, it develops critical thinking among the students.
The History Department at Shaheed Bhagat Singh College has highly qualified staff, which is committed to the goal of providing the right environment for our students to understand the historical discourse. We do not believe in the dissemination of knowledge to the classroom only, but we also have our history society, Historia to organize various activities like audio-visual presentations, film screenings, debates, interactive talks, and one-day trips to museums and monuments, etc. Our society is also dedicated to inviting eminent scholars for seminars and workshops to uphold the academic values of the department. A fullfledged two-day history festival, Yugantar is organized annually by the department encouraging our students to showcase their talent via various academic and cultural activities.
