Home - Department of History and Diplomacy


In 1962 when the University of Cape of Cape, then University College of Cape Coast, started its academic career, History as a subject of study was a unit in the Department of Arts. In 1965, the Department of Arts became a full faculty, Faculty of Arts, and its units became departments. The Department of History in the Faculty of Arts introduced general degree students to the history of the modern world with special emphasis on the African situation. Since the 1990’s,the Department of History has been reviewing its programmes by including new courses and programmes. In November 2023, the Department changed its name to the Department of History and Diplomacy to reflect the content of some of its existing courses and new programmes.
The Department has, over the years, not relented in its mandate to train and equip its students with knowledge and skills to enable them contribute to society’s development. The Department has produced many graduates who have been occupying positions in different sectors of the economies of Ghana and other African countries.

Head of Department
