The history major sequence brings the past to life by introducing you to a diverse range of societies and cultures that have shaped the modern world. History at ACU has an exciting and innovative global focus. You will have the opportunity to study European, American, Australian, Indigenous, Asian and Ancient history, and to engage with key themes such as war and peace, race and class, gender and sexuality, violence and terrorism, and film and popular culture. In exploring the people, ideas and events that have defined the past and given meaning to the present, you will develop critical skills that will equip you for a rich and rewarding professional career.
With high-developed analytical, written and communication skills, history graduates have gone on to exciting employment in a number of areas, including politics and policy-making, foreign affairs and diplomacy, journalism and public relations, heritage sites and museums, and in schools and universities.
