|Description:||The study of history involves the use of a wide array of sources and methodologies to effect an imaginative reconstruction of the past. Once preoccupied with politics and ideas, historians have broadened the scope of their enquiry to consider economic and social history, as well as the history of culture and collective mentalities. Their efforts of historical reconstruction are useful for the knowledge they provide concerning the origin and nature of contemporary institutions and societies, in addition to the insights they provide into the range of human experience and behaviour. The student of history will be introduced to historical sources and methods, as well as to some of the essential problems of historical interpretation.
A major in history opens the way to a variety of careers, including journalism, university and high school teaching, specialized work in archives and museums and employment in civil service departments like the Department of External Affairs. At the same time it provides an excellent liberal education for those who contemplate careers in law or politics.
