Remembering the past has been an important part of the human experience for millennia. Our Humanities department is rich in coverage across multiple specializations to provide a wide range of concepts, research and theories that span across thousands of years uncovering discoveries and events. Had the Chinese not invented paper over 2000 years ago, there is no telling when humans would be able to record events and narratives for us to read today. Historical research provides insight into the people and places of the past. Learn about different cultures in History from around the globe, and discover how everyday life changes over time and space. Whether you are interested in how the Roman Empire conquered the Mediterranean, or how Western Europe and the South Pacific rebuilt after the Second World War, there are always new worlds to explore in History.
