History
About the Department

A critical understanding of the past is vital to both individuals and societies, providing the roots for them to flourish in the present. History is also a keystone for most other disciplines in the arts and the social sciences because it has remarkably few thematic borders, is methodologically diverse, and is also inherently comparative. Consequently, across the world, major universities have usually had major departments of history and the University of Duhok is no exception.

The History department gives students a fresh perspective on history as a discipline and a better grasp of the sheer amount of accumulated experience of mankind. Moreover, it seeks to provide appropriate education not only for students but also for those who wish to become professional secondary teachers of history and wish to contribute to the betterment of their society.
