Agboville Department upon its creation in 1969. Although it has kept these boundaries, other departments began to be divided in 1974.

Agboville Department was created in 1969 as one of the 24 new departments that were created to take the place of the six departments that were being abolished. It was created from territory that was formerly part of Sud Department.

In 1997, regions were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast; as a result, all departments were converted into second-level subdivisions. Agboville Department was combined with Adzopé Department to form Agnéby Region.

In 2011, districts were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast. At the same time, regions were reorganised and became second-level subdivisions and all departments were converted into third-level subdivisions. At this time, Agboville Department became part of Agnéby-Tiassa Region in Lagunes District.

Agboville Department retains the same boundaries that it had in 1969; it is the only one of the 24 new departments that were created in 1969 that has not been divided.
