Welcome to the School of History

Our school enjoys a very high national and international reputation for the quality of its research and teaching. The School of History’s staff and research students produce world-class research in Australian, British, European, and North American history, and our three centres – of Biography, Environmental History, and Indigenous History – are active and globally recognised research hubs in their fields. The School also teaches a wide variety of undergraduate courses, supervises graduate students in our research fields, and maintains a vibrant culture of research seminars, Visiting Fellows, and departmental visitors from Australia and abroad. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website, and I hope that you will explore it to see the breadth and quality of our work.


Dr. Alex Cook, undergraduate convenor, explains why the School of History offers great courses, taught by great teachers.




Associate Professor Ruth Morgan, postgraduate convenor, discusses the great opportunities to take postgraduate courses that reveal the significance of history in the present.
