History in the making

By studying History at Flinders you’ll gain a strong understanding of the big issues that underpin society now and throughout the ages. History deals with important topics ranging from global migration, the population explosion, famine, technological change and human impact on the environment. It explores the explosive consequences of nationalism, war and society, the rise and fall of empires, revolution, decolonisation, democracy, fascism and communism. Our team of highly-regarded academic historians teach subjects covering many centuries, from early modern times to World War 2, Nazi Germany and more – with a focus on the fields of Australian, European, American and International history.

You’ll learn to investigate and analyse evidence, think critically and communicate your findings effectively. Building a knowledge base from over 40 different topics over the three-year Bachelor of Arts degree, you’ll find career opportunities across a broad scope of fields, including teaching, government, tourism, publishing, museums, libraries and arts organisations



Flinders was the perfect choice for me as it really allowed me to pursue my interests and study in a friendly and productive environment. Flinders stands out to me from other universities because of the diversity in topics they offer as well as the tightknit and welcoming community within the college.”
