Christian College Kattakada, the monument of sweat and toil of the SIUC Community of the South Kerala Diocese (Church of South India) was established in the year 1965 with the blessing of the first Bishop Rev.

The Degree Course in the College was inaugurated by the then Home Minister Sri.K.Karunakaran on 27-08-1977.The History class was commenced in the ‘Sudarsan.K.Das Memorial Hall’which was constructed with the generous contribution of Mrs.C.K.Das (wife of the first Chief Secretary of Travancore – Cochin State) in loving memory of her son Sudarson.K.Das who died at an early age. The senior most members of the College staff member Mr.J.Lidson Raj became the first Professor and Head of the Department.

But with the introduction  of the Economics Department, they created separate Departments for History, Economics and Political Science. Accordingly the total strength of the Teachers was reduced to ten.
