History Department


The department’s aims must produce graduates and new generations of historians.  A junior historian should have such qualifications.

  • To be able to judge the success of the organizational changes
  • To give benefits from the experiences
  • To reveal the opportunities for political success and failure


To reach these aims, the History Department provides courses leading to Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts. Bachelor of Arts in History students have to attend a four years full time course. The students who are qualified in the second year can attend the honor class for B.A Honours Degree. Undergraduates have to learn following related subjects; Myanmar, English, Geography and Philosophy.

In the final year, the students have to make term paper presentation. Master Degree candidates are required to attend a one year full time course. In postgraduate the students have to prepare thesis and to attend historical seminar. A one –year thesis research is also required.

Our department aims to produce graduates of new
generations of historians who have the critical thinking skills to evaluate the past so as to assess changes that can affect our society, communities and organisations. Annually, we have 300 undergraduate, Honours and Master degree students who participate in lectures, tutorials and field trips. We offer a wide range of Master courses including: Myanmar Art and Architecture, Environmental History, and Economic History. Students are required to conduct research and present their findings in historical seminars.
