The Graduate Certificate in World Historical Studies provides students with a grounding in the latest research and new approaches in world history from the sixteenth century to the present day.
The focus is world history and how world history might be studied through a number of specific case studies. The case studies examine various forms of contact between Europe and the 'new worlds' since the early modern period (approx 1500s) through to the twentieth century. A common thread that runs through the case studies is the place of Australia in these forms of contact. These new 'cross-cultural' approaches to world history replace older forms of world history that focused on comparing the great civilisations of East and West.
