History

Enables students to understand our world and put the present in context. Students will study empires past and present, the media, slavery, wars, revolutions, poverty, human rights, dictators and democracies; as well as Australian history in a globalising world.

The study of history is a good basis for understanding politics, heritage, social and indigenous issues. It teaches analytical skills and a deep understanding of society. History majors have become politicians, high ranking public servants, policy analysts, negotiators, analysts for mining companies, teachers, expert advisors for historical films and heritage consultants.
