Prof. Dr. Muhammad Zubair
The Department of Islamic History may
be regarded as one of the oldest departments of Karachi University.
It was established in 1953 with a view to provide facilities for
advanced studies and original research in the field of Islamic History
and culture. Although in the opening phase it had a very limited
number of students and very few teachers, yet it attracted the intelligentsia
and subject lovers soon. So much so that it became one of the largest
department of the Faculty of Arts in the following years. It still
ranks the same. At present there are more than four hundred students
on roll in this department.
Teaching & Assessment
Teaching combines lectures, extensive
lectures and group discussions in the classroom. Student’s performance
is assessed by end-of-semester examination.
