This 2-year MA in History program at Shoolini University combines the study of Modern Indian history with modern global history.

The program, structured into four semesters at Shoolini University, focuses on the study of history and its modern interpretations. Students learn all about modern Indian history including Indian Nationalism, contemporary India, and relatively recent fields of study such as Gender Studies, Subaltern Studies, and Gandhian Studies. Additionally, they attain in-depth knowledge about the history of the world, right from Eastern to Western countries, to key global events.

The MA History program not only enlightens students about the historical study of the past but also improves their understanding of international events through present history. It strives to widen historical research methodology and comprehension, allowing students to decode hidden narratives and agendas in historical literature.


Shoolini University's faculty comes from Oxford, NIH, and NCI. Many academic members have received grants from domestic and foreign organisations. Our university partners with top universities worldwide for student exchange and other initiatives.
