Department is keen on the all round development of the students.

In the career of the college, a notable part was played by the Department both in the academic and extracurricular fields. In 1928, the college became first grade with History as the optional Subject. In 1929 the first professor of History, Miss Louise Ouwerkerk, a graduate of Cambridge university took charge. In 1932 the BA course was suspended due to economic reasons and the college became 2nd Grade. It was in 1950 that the college was again raised to the status of first grade by introducing History as an optional subject for B.A.
