Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences

Department Of History And Pakistan Studies

Overview

The department of History was established in 1947 and this is one of the leading departments of Arts & Humanities in former Govt. College for Women Multan at intermediate and Degree level. It has been offering post graduates classes in History since 2005 and initiated BS (4Year) in 2010.

Now it’s a great honor for us to redesign our department and programs under the shelter of The Women University, Multan with new mission and objectives.

The importance of History is in its capacity to help one to draw conclusions from the past events. It may be said that history is to the human race, what memory is to each man. It sheds the light of the past upon the present, thus helping one to understand oneself, by making one acquainted with other peoples. Also, as one studies the rise and fall of empires and civilizations, the lessons of the past help one to avoid the pitfalls of the present.

It preserves the traditions and cultural values of a nation, and serves as a beacon of light, guiding society in confronting various crises. History is indeed as Allen Nerins puts it, “a bridge connecting the past with the present and pointing the road to the future.”
