Learn to look at the world with a new perspective
Studying history will give you a new appreciation for the world around you.
History is a subject as large as New Zealand recorded past. New Zealand cultural heritages, literature, arts, religions, politics, economics, social behaviours, buildings and landscapes all derive from past influences.
Studying history gives an understanding of where New Zealand has been and how the world has changed over time. It gives an appreciation of how people have faced challenges at different times, and all with the benefit of hindsight.
With a history major you can shape your degree around your interests. You can make your history major specific to one particular area, like New Zealand and the Pacific, or study a particular era, like the medieval period, or the 20th century.
You could focus on a specific theme, such as politics, sport or social history, or just pick what takes your fancy.
Through history students can understand New Zealand past, explain New Zealand present and be better equipped to predict the future. At Massey, the history programme is focused on New Zealand and European history and New Zealand’s place in the world.
The university has the strongest focus on New Zealand history of any university in the world and New Zealand themes are central to the university academics’ research.
