To this end, the degree has been designed to provide students with a thorough understanding of all the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of historical inquiry, and the many and varied methodologies that can be employed to shed light on the past, and to make use of that past for today's changing world. History is also by its nature a cross-disciplinary study, and the degree is structured to provide an understanding of the multidisciplinary applications and relevance of historical study across multiple fields.
Historical Inquiry and Practice at University of New England focuses specifically on the professional development of historians. As it is recommended for professional historians to engage in the study of a cognate discipline relevant to their chosen professional speciality - and because historical inquiry is now widely accepted as elemental to various professions beyond those conventionally associated with history - this course also includes a field of study opportunity whereby the student's study and training in history may be purposefully combined with other disciplines, to facilitate education in, for example, historical fiction and writing, social history and criminology, family history and sociology, national history and languages, cultural history and music.
As a result of acquiring these skills, graduates are highly employable in a wide range of fields. Options include, but are by no means limited to: Teaching (especially for history and studies in religion graduates); Tourism; Publishing; Marketing and advertising; Public relations; Journalism and media; Professional writing; Heritage management; Defence and foreign service; Counselling; Museum management; Public service; Foreign affairs and diplomacy; Community and social work; Aid agencies; Libraries; Research; Legal work; Professional history
