About this course

The Bachelor of Arts is a flexible degree that provides students with the optimal balance between a defined sequence of study and flexible course options. This innovative program has been designed to develop graduates with the key practical skills and interdisciplinary knowledge required to be the leaders of tomorrow. The program will provide the students with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding.

History provides an essential framework for all the humanities and social sciences. It is an on-going dialogue between the present and the past: about how the past should be understood and interpreted, and about the meanings people should assign to the past. An informed understanding of the present and our expectations for the future go hand-in-hand with knowledge of history. The study of history further promotes the acquisition of important professional skills such as the ability to initiate an original inquiry, conduct archival research and documentary analysis and interpret evidence. At UQ, topics within this major include:

  • Great Empires
  • Genocide, Global History
  • The Foundations of Europe and Islamic Civilisation.
