Department of History
From Desk of the Head



    The Department of History has a great legacy of scholarship since its establishment in 1964. It has played a pioneering role in throwing light on regional history, notably, Maratha history and history of Modern Maharashtra. The department began its journey under the direction of Dr.Appasaheb Pawar, the well-known historian of the Marathas and the first Vice-Chancellor of Shivaji University. Later prominent historians like Dr. V.D. Rao, Dr. B.R. Kamble, Dr. V.S. Kadam, Dr. Arun Bhosale, Dr. M.A. Lohar, Dr. M.P. Patil, Dr. Smt. P.A. Patil and Dr. N. D. Parekar gave academic leadership as Head of the Department. 

                 Many of the students of the Department come from small towns and mofussil areas, some belong to the underprivileged sections of rural society. The faculty strives to improve their knowledge of the past and their skills at analytical thinking, coherent argument, and clarity of expression. NET/ SET Coaching Programme, Remedial Coaching, Guest Lectures, and Co-curricular activities are organized to equip them to make informed choices about their careers. We have started a P.G. Diploma to introduce the students to the emerging field of Museology.
