The History sequence brings the past to life by introducing students to a diverse range of societies and cultures that have shaped the modern world. History at ACU has an exciting and innovative global focus. Students will have opportunities 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, students will develop critical skills that will equip them for rich and rewarding professional careers. With world-class 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 and museums, and schools and universities.
