Mission Mission of the Department of History is to train students in a critical understanding of the past and to cultivate an appreciation of the enduring power and relevance of that past in the present. We see ourselves as researchers and teachers; as scholars and public servants; as models of responsible interpretation and as producers of new knowledge. We pride ourselves in our constant endeavor to achieve academic excellence and in the fact that teaching is not only valued but viewed as a crucial part of the historian's craft. Placed in the zone of conflict, the department also tries to creat a historical narrative of the region which may contribute to conflict resolution and nation building on secular and scientific line. we are constantly seeking ways to sustain our mission in ways that are responsive to 21st century conditions but reflect our conviction that knowing the past helps to humanize us in the contemporary moment.
