History is a multifaceted chronological study of the past based on extant sources and physical evidence. Besides using secondary sources, that is either survey or specialised texts in the History courses, LUMS seeks to inculcate a nuanced understanding of the past through primary sources that date back to the time period under discussion. Hence, despite the fact that History faculty at LUMS have different specializations, there is pedagogical consistency across History courses at LUMS as students learn to read historical documents and become attuned to the process of narrative construction. 

Degree requirements for this course are: 

  • Successful completion of Matric (60% marks or above) and FA (60% marks or above)/FSc/ ICS/ICOM (65% marks or above)
  • O’ Levels results (in at least 6 subjects) and A’ Levels in at least 3 principal subjects1 with at least 2 Bs and 1 C grade such that there should be no more than 1 C grade and no grade less than a C. No credit will be given for General Paper.
  • American High School Diploma (HSD) (65% or above/Grade point average of B- or above)
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) (at least 30 out of 45 points)

A B.A. in History opens up many possibilities. Students with an undergraduate degree in History shall find themselves qualified for work in the media, the public sector, in multilateral/non-governmental organisations and with advocacy groups. In addition, it is noteworthy that many students with a Humanities or Social Sciences degree from LUMS have gone on to find employment in the corporate and financial sector. A History degree is not an impediment to finding meaningful employment. In addition, some students shall pursue graduate training leading to a life of teaching, research, and writing as professional historians.
