History is the study of the past-specifically of the people, societies, events and problems of the past- as well as our attempts to understand them. It is a pursuit common to all human societies. History can take the form of a tremendous story, a rolling narrative filled with great personalities and finding new things in those chapters already written.
History provides us with a sense of identity. By understanding where we have come from, we can better understand who we are. History provides a sense of context for our lives and our existence. It helps us understand the way things are and how we might approach the future.
BA History is a 3-years undergraduate course that is divided into 6-semesters. The course curriculum basically focuses on teaching all aspects of history which includes Indian history, modern history, ancient world European history, contemporary history, etc.
BA History is studied in combinations in Bangalore, some of the combinations available are:
The students who have completed their PUC or 10+2 in any stream from recognised board are eligible to apply for BA History course.
The eligible students can take admission to BA History course by two modes of admission. The first one is merit-based admission and second one is direct admission.
There are many reputed colleges and universities that conduct institution-based entrance exams for admission to BA History course, such mode of admission is called merit-based admission. The colleges have limited number of merit-seats and entrance exams are conducted for these merit-seats to select the deserving students. The main idea for institution-based entrance exams is to select the serious candidates from the non-serious ones. The successfully qualified students are then allotted merit-seats. The fees are also nominal for merit-seats.
The students can also take admission to BA History by another mode called as direct admission. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges through direct admission under management quota. The main advantage of this mode is that the students are not required to appear for any institution-based entrance exams. Another advantage is that the students can get admission to their desired colleges by booking their seats in advance even before the colleges start. The students interested in direct admission can contact the educational advisory centres like Galaxy Educational Services to know more about direct admission procedures.
