This program covers three distinct areas: discipline knowledge, a choice of area studies and writing history. This course suits students coming to the study of history for the first time as well as those who want to extend their knowledge in particular areas or upgrade their professional qualifications. The area studies cover both Ancient and Modern History, including Ancient Greece and Rome, the Ancient Near East, Early Modern and Medieval History, American History, Australian History, Asian History, European History and Public History. The course progresses from exploring the nature of history as a discipline through to specialised studies of historical periods and problems, and it ends with the opportunity to undertake substantial historical research projects including writing for publication.
