In 1994/1995 this department was established to be a gateway to understanding the present and have foresight about the future through studying the past. We aim to equip our students with all the understanding and interpretation skills necessary to understanding past events, all of that according to the requirements of the contemporary and future eras which are deeply linked to past human heritage. We also aim to entrench the national Arabic Islamic identity, as well as the belonging to our history. We participate in numerous researches, and contribute to the cultural movement through participation in the activities and events. We also offer consultations and experiences both locally and internationally, as well as encourage faculty members to conduct science studies in their majors.
We are focused on improving our study plans and curricula to keep up with the development plans of the country and our university goals with the new international criteria of evaluating the major curricula to achieve the best possible level.
