Summary

Specialise in History for your Diploma in Arts at Massey

History is a topic as large as our recorded past. Our cultural heritages, literatures, arts, religions, politics, economics, social behaviours, buildings and landscapes all derive from past influences.

Massey offers a range of topics so you can explore your own particular interests. Topics you could study include:

the history of New Zealand and the Pacific

focus on the history of Britain/Europe

study pre-industrial society or colonisation

social and political history, or

contemporary history.

A Diploma in Arts in History is a good fit if you:

enjoyed history at school

want to learn more about historical events and why they happened.

Regardless of whether you complete the diploma with or without an endorsement, if you later proceed to the Bachelor of Arts degree, all of the courses in your Diploma in Arts can be transferred to the Bachelor of Arts.
