About

With Massey University’s Postgraduate Diploma in Arts (History) you can build on your undergraduate interests and take your study of history to a higher level.

Overview

Understand the present by studying the past

History is a subject as large as our recorded past. Our cultural heritages, literature, arts, religions, politics, economics, social behaviours, buildings and landscapes all derive from past influences.

Studying history gives you an understanding of where we have been and how the world has changed. You’ll get an appreciation of how people have faced challenges at different times, with the benefit of hindsight.

Research your particular interest

With a PGDipArts (History) you can investigate a particular issue in great depth. You could focus on New Zealand and the Pacific, or study a particular era, such as the medieval period, or the 20th century. You could look at a theme, such as politics, sport or social history, or just pick what takes your fancy. The courses you’ll complete will complement your focus on your chosen research area by helping you develop your research skills and quickly master the research process.

Through history we can understand our past, explain our present and be better equipped to predict the future.
