The Master of History offered at University of New England course covers three distinct areas: discipline knowledge, a choice of area studies and writing history. It suits those students coming to the study of history for the first time as well as those who want to extend their knowledge or upgrade their professional qualifications. Covering Ancient, Medieval and Modern History, the course aims to explore the nature of history as a discipline through specialised studies of historical periods and problems. It concludes with the opportunity to undertake substantial historical research projects including writing for publication.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
- exhibit and apply an advanced body of historical knowledge across a range of periods and themes, and understand the nature and development of historical inquiry and thought from ancient times to the most recent developments of the modern age;
- understand and apply the various principles and methods used in historical inquiry and practice, including the evaluation, synthesising, interpretation and application of both historical evidence and historical thinking;
- apply higher-level writing and communication skills, as well as an advanced level of creative and theoretical thinking;
- apply the range of critical, reflective and technical skills used by historians to a range of public and professional areas such as journalism, media work, public relations, policy development, government and administration; and
- demonstrate and apply advanced knowledge of research principles and methods, and themes applicable to the discipline.
This course offers higher-level writing and research skills development. Moreover, it encourages critical thinking and analytical skills development as well, all of which will be useful in a range of professions especially journalism and media work, public relations, policy development, government and administration. Many of our graduates will wish to work as consulting historians or to continue in the teaching profession.
Those not wishing to pursue career paths but studying History out of interest will find the concentrated study of history at this higher level personally rewarding which may lead to the writing of History for pleasure and profit.
