To learn about history is to learn about change in the world and in ourselves. Having a better understanding of history will make you more broad-minded as a person and citizen.

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. This could include the history of New Zealand and the Pacific, Britain/Europe, pre-industrial societies, colonisation, social and political history or contemporary history.
