Humanities and Social Sciences
The number of students studying history in the intermediate and higher levels has been on a steady decline for the past few years.
Some believe the reason lies in history being a non-lucrative degree. Others suggest that it is the non-reflective nature of the history departments in academia.
Some historians are worried that this dearth of academic historians will hurt critical historiography on Nepal.
The declining number of history graduates and post-graduates was linked to the decreasing number of students in the higher secondary level.
