Third Year course offerings
In third year of study, students are offered modules on a variety of topics. Most of these change each year.
In term one, students are introduced to research methods and sources used to produce knowledge about the past.
In the three subsequent terms, historians in the department offer specialised courses within their fields of expertise and research. Students have some choice in selecting topics of focus. In the past, offerings have included historical themes related to slavery, consumerism, the family, gender, drugs, leisure, economy, health, among others.
