University rank #151 (ARWU) ,
Historians explore the past, examining the development of social, political, cultural and economic forces and how they have shaped societies and cultures over time.


Through examining the past, the History major seeks to help you understand present day societies, events and everyday life, and will encourage you to think of ways to help society overcome and adapt to the challenges of our changing environment.

This major’s international scope includes specialised studies in Australia, Western Europe and Russia, the Middle East, South Asia, South-East Asia and East Asia. Within this scope, you will study topics such as war, conflict, empire, imperialism, dictatorships, marginalisation, culture, heritage, place and belonging, whilst being encouraged to examine how history shapes the way we now think, believe and act.

You will also acquire critical thinking skills, and the capacity to analyse and discuss ideas, which are readily transferable into a range of careers.
