The department of history has delivered its message since
its inception upon the graduation of qualified students who
work in multiple government sectors particularly education.
The department has been coping with the development in
the field of education in our country, Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia, through the improvement of curricula and study
plans every few years to keep up with the academic progress.
The study was not only limited to bachelor's degree, but
included postgraduates diploma as well in the academic year
1398 / 1399. After that students started to register for
Pre-Masters-year in 1399 AH / 1400. In 1404/1405 a
preliminary doctorate became available to students.
The number of graduates until now is 22 master students, 13
PhD students. The theses written by the students contribute
immensely to the field of history.
The department still has futuristic visions and proposals in
order to keep pace with the scientific movement and the
development of human resources by taking advantage of
educational qualifications. One of the proposals is adding
tourism and archeology majors to the department’s study
plan. Our country is replete with many tourist and
archaeological areas which deserve better attention through
the development of competencies eligible in this specialty.
The department can also benefit from its graduates by
spreading awareness and establishing museums in all regions.
Our country is sprawling and is full of different
environments and multiple customs and traditions. Such a
fertile ground for scientific material reflects the great
development of the country in various ways.
We hope to add vital and important courses to the study plan
of the department of history which contribute to the
enrichment of the Department of History like political
