Summary

The Bachelor of Arts is your ultimate springboard into a wide range of careers and further study options.

The Bachelor of Arts will equip you with a range of specialised and transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers: creative thinking, respect for multiple perspectives, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

History helps us to understand ourselves, and those around us in our community, region, country, and the world. Above all, historical knowledge is a vital component of cultural literacy and equips you to be global citizen. Studying History involves more than the study of places and periods. Develop both broad and detailed understanding of multiple historical contexts as well as fundamental and transferrable skills in historical analysis, historical research, and communication covering multiple themes, geographies, and chronologies.

History is at the heart of the School of Humanities. It helps us to understand ourselves, and those around us in our community, region, country, and the world. Above all, historical knowledge is a vital component of cultural literacy and equips you to be global citizen.

As historians, we use a wide range of approaches to examine past events, people, processes, and relationships, in order to interpret their significance, origins, and outcomes.

Learn how to locate information, to analyse and to interpret sources, to engage in systematic exposition and present reasoned arguments.

What careers relate to History?

Studying History is an opportunity to gain valuable experience and training in making judgements on the basis of incomplete information, in understanding human life in all its complexity, in critical thought and in jargon-free communication. This will equip you to find work in areas such as journalism, the electronic media, teaching, politics, the public service, business, libraries, museums and archives, heritage and tourism.

Modern workplaces are invariably changing; responding to economic, political and social forces, which means employees need the basic intellectual capacities to adapt to change. Employers also depend on people who are effective communicators and decision-makers, with demonstrable skills in critical thinking, problem solving, research and investigation. These abilities are fundamental for graduates from the School of Humanities.
