The History program from The Government College University Faisalabad aims to be a leader of the disciplines of social sciences by developing analytical tools excelling in teaching, scholarship and exploiting opportunities for academic research.


The Department of History and Pakistan Studies is dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and diversity. The department strives to polish the students’ intellectual curiosity with a focus on tools to assess and solve complex problems and inculcate skills to become independent and motivated decision-makers. 

The Department offers programmes i.e. MSc (Morning/Evening) and MPhil (Evening) in both History and Pakistan Studies. It aims to impart learning and understanding of the philosophical, social and cultural, political and economic contours of the discipline of History as well as various aspects of the state and society of Pakistan. The History program is offered at The Government College University Faisalabad.

It also attempts to orientate the students towards the institutional strengths and weakness of the government to reinforce its strengths and correct what we may call our deficiencies.


The Department would launch PhD programme in near future. Pakistan Studies is an inter-disciplinary subject and it offers courses which have close affinity with and understanding of other subjects of Social Sciences such as Economics, Sociology, History, Political Science and Pakistani languages and their literature. 

We are trying our best to encourage and prepare the students for the exploration, analysis and advancement of research on the issues besetting Pakistan internally and externally. 

In this regard, the authorities of the university are planning to establish a Research Centre in near future which would not only concentrate on the basic issues of Pakistani state and society but also examine and boost the prospects of peace in South Asia and suggest ways and means to promote harmony and stability in the region.
