The Department of History, Bodoland University was introduced in 2005.

A Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies is also run by the department. Field visits, internships, assignment presentations for classroom debate, video lectures, role-playing exercises, and experiential learning are all part of the department's regular schedule. The department holds seminars, workshops, lecture series, and other events on a regular basis to further strengthen the skills and growth of its students and academic members. In order to support its students in all aspects of life, the department also uses the mentor-mentee model.
