Affiliated to:

Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur

Built up Area:

The Department of History was situated in the A.C. College Campus.

This area was also known as Annex Block

Objectives/Goals of the Department:-

As the college happened to be a Christian Minority institution, vast majority of the students in our department come from poor Socio-Economic backgrounds. Almost all the students are scholarship holders whose parents are mostly daily labours.

The Academic standards of the students of Intermediate level also were not very high. Another draw back of the system in that all the students are from Telugu Medium and hence, they are unable to communicate in English. In spite of all these draw backs, the teacher taught very effectively in both Media and well trained to face the University examinations by way of conducting monthly tests, Mid-term examinations and student assignments as a result the students are scoring high marks in the University level examinations. Students are active in extra curricular activities.

This is the main objectives or goals of the History Department.

Extra curricular and co-curricular activities of the department:-

All the members of the Department are active participants of various extra curricular activities organized by the Government as well as the Management.

            Previously we have actively participated in programmes like, Janmabhoomi, clean and green, Aids awareness, programmes and officiated as presiding officers in the Assembly, Parliament elections. Our department faculty is actually participated in ‘swatcha Bharat’ Programme which was conducted by Andhra Christian college.
