Welcome to Department of History

The Department of History was established in the Savitribai Phule Pune University in 1969. Earlier, it was located in the Deccan College, but at that time, a separate Department was set up in the University of Pune for the study of Medieval and Modern Indian history, while Archaeology and Ancient Indian History remained with the Deccan College. Dr. A.R. Kulkarni, now Professor Emeritus, was the first Head of the new Department, which remained a very small one for many years.

Today, the Department runs M.A., M.Phil and Ph.D. courses. A semester and credit pattern is followed at the M.A. level. In addition to the Department itself, there are fifteen other postgraduate centres located in various colleges affiliated to the University of Pune, but the M.Phil course is conducted only by the Department. The Department also runs a Certificate Course in Modi Script.
