Credit points: 15

Subject outline

How is the past made into history? In this subject, you will make history,researching a topic, event, place or artefact of your choice. Your challenge is to present this history in an engaging way to the public (via an illustrated essay, video or museum display). You will gain practical experience in independent research, critical thinking, communication and ethics. As you engage with historical debates, you will challenge traditional ideas and practices, and develop skills in understanding how the past becomes history. You will go from being the student studying other histories, to being the historian making your own history. Making History is the history capstone subject, but is also suitable as an elective in archaeology, politics, gender studies, education, english, media and communication.
