B A (Honors) History & International Relations

ELIGIBILITY: 10+2 level from any recognized board in India or Overseas

Programme Overview

At IILMU, the 3-year degree programme brings together the two interrelated fields of study – History and International Relations. The underlying belief that the study of the contemporary world and how nations relate to each other at various levels cannot be understood without knowing the historical context leads to a dovetailing of both the subjects. Therefore, the programme we offer is a beautiful blend of core subjects of History and International Relations and elective subjects from Liberal Arts such as Microeconomics, Academic Writing, Psychology, Law, Art & Culture, and Environmental Studies.
Our pedagogy is a combination of interactive and engaging lectures, seminars, tutorials, field trips, group and individual study, workshops, practical sessions and much more. The curriculum focuses on interdisciplinary and contemporary issues giving a broader horizon to learn. Unique experiential learning and hands-on approach using some of the advanced tools makes learning deep and meaningful. The course mandates a 6-8 weeks summer internship/live project to make the student’s more attuned to the real world. We also offer avenues for foreign education through summer school and student exchange opportunities.

Career Prospects

The course of History & International Relation opens up the world of contemporary knowledge and applicability.
