MAAAES  History Major  

This unit set is available in the following courses:

The past is everywhere including the present. History enables us to understand our world and put the present in context. We 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, and 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, and analysts for mining companies, teachers, expert advisors for historical films, and heritage consultants. The potential for careers is virtually limitless.
