About the Department of AIHC & Arch

Abiding by the educational ideals of our founding inspiration and great visionary Dr. Annie Besant, the department of A.I.H.C & Arch. at Vasant Kanya Mahavidyalaya, inquires into almost every aspect of history of traditional and tolerant Indian society and its institutions. It seeks credibility from archaeological methods to investigate literary, artistic and scientific temperament of ancient people. We serve the college by providing quality education to undergraduate and post-graduate students who are able to undertake objective inquiry into the glorious past of India. The department was established in the year 1969. Dr. Krishna Goswami was the first In-charge of the Department, succeeded by Dr. Nandini Verma.

Interdisciplinary Practice

Interdisciplinary projects and activities are promoted in the department through various efforts and collaborations. The department has been organizing seminars, workshops and lecture programs for students jointly with other departments of the college, i.e. Economics, History, English & Sanskrit and the departments of different organizations/college. Participation in the programs of INTACH is a regular activity for better understanding of the art of conservation and importance of heritage management.

A six-month ‘Certificate Course in Indology’ is introduced for students of various disciplines. It is designed with an objective to popularize Indological studies among students of every interest area.

Best Practices

Students of the department publish e-magazine ‘THATI: Journey from Soil to Soul’ on Heritage Week every year. The articles are based on first-hand experience of students on their topics. They visit, document, photograph and write about different subjects. This practice inculcates research habit and analytical writing skills among students.

The department with its club ‘Antiquity’ plans to delve into vast spectrum of academic commitments. It is established to bring together students with good academic pursuit who have the ability to organize/ perform at the Expert Talks, Students’ Colloquiums and Competitions etc. The club is fully operated by the students under the mentorship of teachers.
